We create a customized cover letter for you to showcase your strengths and experience to the reader. The best part is, these cover letters are completely reusable! We carefully craft the important writing in the body of the letter. We sell your strengths and your accomplishments in a professional, yet compelling way.
The contact information of the reader—the part of the letter that change each time you send off a new resume: the company address, the name of the position, how you heard of the position, etc.—are left in a convenient template format for you to fill in as needed. The cover letters we write are so versatile, you may never need a new cover letter again! You can simply use ours over and over for years!

A version of your resume in PDF takes the worry out of attaching your resume to an e-mail and having it become “unformatted” during delivery! If you are on a Mac and the receiver is using a PC, there may be issues during delivery.
Avoid this hassle altogether by attaching a PDF version to the email. The reader will open a version of your resume as it was intended to look.
It can be “locked” so no one else can copy the information on it. A good idea!
Thank You Letters
Never underestimate the power of a Thank You letter. This is the best way to stand out from the hoards of candidates the HR person saw that same day/week. In fact, the hiring managers and recruiters we’ve talked to say if choosing between two similar candidates, they almost always hire the candidate that sent the thank you letter.
We offer a thank you letter template to assist you in the letter writing process. It matches the rest of your documents and it offers suggestions to help you think of what to write. Customize it for each interview. Remember, if you talked about something non-work related (a recent sporting event, for example), you may want to mention it in the letter as it will help the employer remember you!
The “ASCII” (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) or “.txt” version of your resume is an electronic version suitable for submission via email or for pasting into online resume bank submission forms (jobs.com, monster.com, etc). It is unformatted and used for this purpose.
It’s also good when working with recruiters. Most recruiters like a plainer version of your resume for their resume keyword scanning machines or OCR machines.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) was developed in the 70’s with the purpose of creating a machine to help the visually impaired read printed materials. It has since become a mainstay of business.
With OCR, it’s a computer, not a person that will be scanning your resume for appropriate content. Since machines are not impressed by font styles and other formatting enhancements, content and keywords are important, as is the presentation of your document in a scanner-friendly manner.
