The smartest job seekers know that writing a cover letter — even if it’s not required — brings with it a bushel of benefits. And yet, if your letter doesn’t stand out, or if it makes just one of many common mistakes, it could sink your entire application.
How can you ensure that this critical document is helping rather than hurting you? By following a three-part process I call “EAR.” “EAR” means you need to answer three questions:
1. Why are you *excited* about the job?
2. Why are you *able* to do the job?
3. Why are the *right* person for the job?
Learn how to make “EAR” work for you and your career in this comprehensive workshop. We’ll study everything from your subject line to your salutation to whether you should include your letter as an attachment or in the body of the email.
Among the lessons you’ll learn:
📌 How to write to the job description.
📌 How to line up your capabilities with their requirements.
📌 How to show off not only your skills but also your personality.
