    • Self-Improvement

Show Notes | June 29, 2020 | Episode 059







Cover letters. Phew. Okay. Let's take a deep breath. We know these are often an applicant's least favorite thing. Want to know a secret? The trick to cover letters is not to skimp or provide the minimal amount of effort. Your cover letter is not just an extra chore, rather it is an opportunity to show off experiences that are not easily verbalized in a resume. In this episode, we talk about how cover letters (both written and video) and design are your secret weapons when applying for a job.
