Does your cover letter…
…tell the employer what you can do for the company, rather than what the company can do for you?
…use caution with “willing to learn” statements so the employer isn’t reminded of training time and expenses?
…take advantage of your networking contacts by referring to someone the employer knows?
…elaborate on your qualifications, transferable skills, and your fit with the position?
…explain why you are interested in a position that doesn’t align with your past work experience?
