September 3, 2010, Newsletter Issue #194: Cover Letters on Job Boards

Tip of the Week

Hundreds of people apply for jobs through online job banks on a daily basis. Make sure you stand out from the crowd by customizing your cover letter so that it is specific to the company and the position you're applying for.

If you are unable to find the name of the hiring manager to put on your cover letter even after you call the company to ask, use "Dear Recruiter." Make an extra effort to demonstrate your research into the company.
