Amazing πŸ‘ Thanks so much for sharing your template in detail and ALSO, congratulations on having a record-number of interviews the past couple months! Cheering you on to get to the finish line :)I also really loved the tone of your cover letter, there's a lot of personality and definitely shows enthusiasm and authenticity β€” all of which, for me, is such a valuable differentiator and breath of fresh air in the midst of work experiences being stacked against candidates. Definitely very memorable!

I'm glad you enjoyed this!And yes, those are the words I hear hiring managers and HRs tell me often - "it has a lot of personality & enthusiasm". πŸ˜…You know, I used to think that cover letters were useless.Now I see that they're my secret weapon of getting my personality, some of my experience, and my knowledge of the company - across to everyone BEFORE they look at my resume.I want THEM to be excited about meeting me, as I am them.The resume almost feels like a formality.I'm trying to win them over on page 1.

This is fantastic, and something I'd been trying to work on before I got my last job, but this really dives in and nails it. Bookmarking this for the next time I'm thinking about applying!

I love this! It makes me reevaluate my current cover letter template which is more about me than the company. This makes a lot of sense and I appreciate you sharing! Good luck with your continued job hunt, with the amount of work you've put in already, you're probably moments away from landing something perfect!

I'm glad you like it & can see the strategy within it. Just like running a company - it's all about them, not you.And yeah, fingers crossed that a dope a$$ company comes along and we're soulmates.😚

This is excellent for two reasons:Not only is it a great, attention getting cover letter, but it sets a good metric for the kinds of jobs you should be applying for. If you can't fangirl about a position, is it really worth the effort of applying?Thanks so much for sharing!
