Writing a Cover Letter

Job Search for the Executive


I see people all the time who wish they had written an effective cover letter, before applying for all those important jobs. Mike Kelley


It can be very tough to get a job, with lots of people seeking work today and obtaining a perfect job can seem like a dream. There are jobs out there but the applicants need to get ahead of the competition. This can be done  with a professionally written CV and a cover letter to help target specific jobs.
