That’s not really my thing. I have helped people out with theirs, but my goal would be to teach others how to do it themselves so they could be successful with it in the future.
I wish I could teach a course on practical life skills which would include all of my knowledge in the financial world, how to build and maintain good credit, resume writing, interviewing techniques, etc.
I think I would be excited to go to work every day :)
I feel like I should start a blog for cover letter, resume, and interview tips. Then maybe someday I can expand it into a consultation business :)

I guess I’d have to see them? And it would depend on what else you’re wearing. If in doubt, I’d go with the flats. If you’d like, post a pic as private and send me the permalink and I’ll help you decide :)

Well first of all, I think you should consider the position you’re applying for when deciding whether or not to include a cover letter. Basic jobs such as retail wouldn’t be something you would include one for unless specifically asked. Assuming you are looking to include one, I would first focus on what the hiring manager is looking for. You don’t want to make them have to figure out how your skills meet their needs, your cover letter should do that for them. Therefore, the more you know about what they’re looking for, the more specific and compelling your letter can be.
I would start with some scrap paper and write out what the ad is looking for and what you offer in skill and experience to meet each need. Once you can see how you’re a good fit for them, I would pick your top 3-5 reasons why you’re an excellent candidate and really highlight those.
I found a good example for a recent graduate that I really liked, it’s below the read more link :) Hope this helps!
