Sometimes even the most qualified candidates with exceptional qualifications get rejected by recruiters. Cover letter is the basic introduction point with recruiters. Here’s how a bad cover letter can spoil your job winning chances:

I have sent my resume to 10 companies but not received a single call?

“Dear................

Please find attached my CV .I am a professional with 16 years of sales experience and have grown up the ladder to lead a team in the West. My strengths are distribution and vendor management and have hands on approach. Please let me know if there is a suitable vacancy”. Following tips may be helpful when you applied for the jobs but you haven’t received a single call:

Target employers and their requirements: When you are applying for the jobs understand the organization culture, problems, and employer requirements then match your skills, talent and expertise to solve them.

● SUITABLE POSITIONS

If you have been applying for relevant and suitable job openings where your background matches the need of the employer? Just check once if you are sending customized resume for all job applications or not.

● CUSTOMIZED RESUME

Make sure that you have a customized resume of 2 pages and presenting it as an employer’s pain point. Before applying for the job study the job description well and customize your resume for each position.

● COVER NOTE

Make sure that you have written an effective cover leter. It should be addressed to the hiring manager of the company. LinkedIn is the best source to find out the names of the hiring managers.

● FOLLOW-UP

Do follow-up with the hiring manager of the company to know the feedback. Call on the land line instead of mobile to get in to receptive mode.

● RECRUITMENT AGENCIES

A reputed recruitment agency is the good source to get you an interview. Demonstrate your abilities with the recruitment agencies to get more opportunities relevant to your skills.
