July 2, 2010, Newsletter Issue #105: The third rule of telecommuting cover letters

Tip of the Week

Résumés sent by e-mail need a brief cover letter. Use two or three quick paragraphs with three to five sentences telling your reader where you heard about the position and why your qualifications are a perfect fit for the position´s requirements. E-mail is intended to be short, sweet, and to the point. The cover letter will give the employer a brief, but to the point, synopsis of who you are and what you can offer. If an employer is sifting through hundreds of applicants, he or she is going to easily narrow down the choices based on what the cover letter says.
