In Cover Letter: Address Exactly What Hiring Manager Wants


Give hiring managers exactly what they want in your cover letter, advises Heather Eagar of “Being a hiring manager is not an easy job,” Eagar writes. “They have to sift through many resume packages from job-seekers who don’t meet the specified requirements and have no skills they need to fill the open position. It’s a frustrating job and it can get them a little on edge. Knowing that, just give them what they want! Don’t beat around the bush or wait until the interview (that you think is coming) to enlighten them about how perfect you are for the job; now is the time to do it.”
