What Might You Be Missing? ...
You may have read recently that Times New Roman is a poor font choice for resumes. I confess: for years, I was a Times New Roman gal, not because I lacked creativity but because I found it classic.
Yet, somehow, I managed to not notice that a lone "T" was in … Helvetica.
(These days, I use Garamond. For the whole document.)
If you're in the hunt for a job, you've no doubt spent a fair amount of time looking at your resume and drafting cover letters.
At some point, you may stop noticing mistakes. It happens to everyone: the more familiar we are with content, the less likely we are to spot errors. Our brains insert what we expect to see.
Perhaps your cover letter needs just a bit of punching up to grab the attention of an HR manager. Or perhaps there's an even-better way to showcase your strengths.
I can help you with that.
I'll also review your cover letter with the same eye for detail and call out any opportunities I see to improve your message. I encourage clients to write their own cover letters, daunting though they may be, but the editor in me is happy to help you polish your prose.
