Try Sending Your Cover Letter Twice


An article on, The Piece of Paper Standing Between You and Your Next Interview: The Cover Letter, by Robyn Tellefsen, quotes Quint Careers.

Attach a handwritten note that says, “Second submission; I’m very interested,” Katy Piotrowski of Career Solutions Group said. “I’ve had clients double their rate of interviews simply from doing that,” she said.
With a little effort (and lot of proofreading), you can write a cover letter that dazzles potential employers and gets you an interview.
