The Cover Letters That Make Hiring Managers Smile (Then Call You)

By Jenny Foss, February 02, 2014

 

You know that next job of yours? Yes, that’s right, the really amazing one with the brilliant co-workers, cool boss, and fresh, free snacks in the office vending machine? That one. You know how you’re going to land it? By quickly showing your future employer that:

a) You’re going to perform incredibly well in this job.

b) You’re insanely likable.

c) You’re really going to fit in around there.

 

These are the three primary factors that influence the selection process. The person who wins that great job will be the one who shows the decision makers, quickly, that he or she is all three of those things. And you have an amazing opportunity to begin planting these seeds right from the introduction, à la your cover letter. Most people squander the opportunity.

Instead of using their cover letter real estate to their massive advantage, they toss over bland, cliche-filled, or completely-redundant-to-the-resume clunkers. Or worse, they showcase all the things that they want out of the deal, without pausing for a moment to recognize that the company cares a heck of a lot more about what it’s going to get from you. As a recruiter, it pains me to read most cover letters, because the vast (and I mean vast) majority of them stink.

Knowing this should inspire you even further to create a brilliant one. Because, let me tell you, on those rare occasions an amazing cover letter crosses my desk? Mamma mia. It makes my day, and it most certainly influences my interest in its author. So, how do you pull off a killer cover letter, one that conveys passion and talent and that makes the recruiter or hiring manager’s day? Make sure you do all of these things. 1. Tell Them Why, Specifically, You’re Interested in the Company Decision makers never want to feel like you’re wallpapering the universe with the same pathetic cover letter. They want to feel special. And so, you need to make it clear that you’re approaching this organization for very specific reasons. And ideally, not the same very specific reasons that everyone else is giving.

Example: Try a high-personality lead in like this: “Having grown up with the Cincinnati Zoo (literally) in my backyard, I understand firsthand how you’ve earned your reputation as one of the most family-friendly venues in the State of Ohio.

For 20 years, I’ve been impressed as your customer; now I want to impress visitors in the same way your team has so graciously done for me.”

2. Outline What You Can Walk Through the Doors and Deliver This isn’t you making a general proclamation of, “Hey, I’m great. I swear!” You need to scrutinize the job description and use whatever other information you’ve gathered about the opening, determine the key requirements and priorities for this job, and make it instantly clear to the reviewer that you can deliver the goods on these key things.

Example: Consider crafting a section within the letter that begins with, “Here’s what, specifically, I can deliver in this role.” And then expound upon your strengths in a few of the priority requirements for that role (they’re typically listed first on the job description or mentioned more than once).

 

3. Tell a Story, One That’s Not on Your Resume As humans, we love stories far more than we love data sheets. (OK, I speak for most humans). So, what’s your story? What brings you to this company? Did you used to sing along to all of its commercials as a kid? Did the product make some incredible difference in your life? Do you sometimes pull into the parking lot and daydream about what it would feel like to work there? Tell your story. Just make sure you have a great segue. Random trivia can come across as weird. Example: Say you’re applying for a marketing job with a baked goods company known for its exquisite tarts and pies. You may want to weave a sentence or two into your cover letter about how you took the blue ribbon in the National Cherry Festival pie eating contest when you were 10, and that you’ve been a pie fanatic ever since. (Yes, this was me, but I actually came in second place. Sigh.)

4. Address the Letter to an Actual Person Within the Company Not one employee at your future new company is named “To Whom it May Concern,” so knock that off. You’ve got to find a real person to whom you can direct this thing. This seems so hard or overwhelming, but it’s often easier than you may think.

 

Just mosey over to LinkedIn and do a People search using the company’s name as your search term. Scroll through the people working at that company until you find someone who appears to be the hiring manager. If you can’t find a logical manager, try locating an internal recruiter, the head of staffing or, in smaller companies, the head of HR. Address your masterpiece to that person. Your effort will be noted and appreciated. And a last, critical factor when it comes to delivering a great cover letter: Be you. Honest, genuine writing always goes much, much further than sticking to every dumb rule you’ve ever read in stale, outdated career guides and college textbooks. Rules can be bent. In fact, if you truly want that amazing job with the brilliant co-workers, cool boss, and fresh, free snacks? They should be.

Hospital and call centre set to create 550 jobs

By Sean O’Riordan – Tuesday, June 16, 2009

CORK is expected to be in line for a major jobs boost later this week with the announcement of the opening of a new private hospital.

The Sheehan Medical Group – which runs the Blackrock Clinic – is expected to announce up to 500 jobs will be created with the development of the hospital at Citygate, Mahon.

It is to be built on the site of recently constructed showrooms and offices.

It’s understood that the 102-bed hospital will include a six-bed intensive care unit.

The hospital will be equipped with the latest technology including imaging, radiological and radiotherapy departments and it will have its own laboratory. It is expected it will also be equipped with four operating theatres and a recovery area.

The Sheehan Medical Group is likely to announce on Thursday that it will open the facility in April 2010.

Meanwhile, telemarketing company Zevas Communications has announced that it is to create 45 jobs at its call centre in Carrigaline. The jobs will be created after Zevas signed a new deal with UPC, the parent company of Chorus NTL to provide telesales and web sales services for its Irish operations.

The jobs will expand the company’s workforce to 135. Zevas Communications spokesman Con Lehane said the UPC deal was worth €2 million.

“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with one of Ireland’s leading telecommunications companies,” Mr Lehane said.

“As a result, we at Zevas can create local job opportunities for candidates who are looking to be part of a great team,” he said.

Tánaiste Mary Coughlan described it as a significant announcement in the current climate.

50 new jobs for Cork as Westbourne IT Global Services doubles in size50 new jobs for Cork as Westbourne IT Global Services doubles in size

Westbourne IT Global Services in Cork is to create 50 new jobs that will see its workforce more than double to 100 employees over the next 18 months.

The company plans to hire multilingual, technical roles for its IT global service centre.

“The Government is determined that 2014 will be the year of jobs and this announcement by Westbourne IT Global Services is a positive start for Cork and the local economy,” Taoiseach Enda Kenny said.

“The expansion of this indigenous company is a great example of how Irish businesses can compete and succeed in global markets. Through the Action Plan for Jobs, the Government will continue to target support at growth sectors for jobs so we can build on the 1,200 jobs per week created in 2013.”

Westbourne IT Global Services is an indigenous company that operates from two facilities in Cork. The company provides secure and remote IT support to global users 24/7, 365 days a year.

This support varies from software installations to major incidents, all dealt with by the company’s networks, server/storage and infrastructure software teams.

Founded in 1994 as an IT product reseller, Westbourne IT Global Services has evolved and grown to become a global IT support services organisation working with a wide spectrum of multinational and indigenous clients across the life sciences, pharmaceutical and related sectors.

Gone global

“Today is a very significant day for Westbourne IT Global Services. When I set up this company 20 years ago, I had a team of three people,” said CEO John O’Sullivan.

“We are now one of Ireland’s leading providers of 24/7, multilingual IT support, operating in seven languages to over 25 indigenous and global organisations. Today, I am delighted to announce that we are actively recruiting for 50 new positions for a variety of technical positions in five different languages. Our new team members will join a rapidly expanding team of talented professionals. We have ambitious plans for continued growth over the next five years and plan to expand our workforce to 350 employees by 2019.”

Enterprise Ireland CEO Julie Sinnamon said the State agency’s priority is to work in partnership with indigenous companies to support their plans for growth in global markets.

“Our focus is on providing our client companies with the support that they need to expand.”

With strong implementation of our plan I am confident that we can see further announcements like this in the coming months.”
