If you’ve ever tried to write a killer cover letter, you’ve probably found yourself staring at a blank screen for a really long time.
Here’s the problem.
In approximately 140 words (60 seconds) you need to make your cover letter so compelling that it stands out from the masses, reflects your passion and determination, articulates your relevant experience/skills, gives a taste of your fabulous personality, and connects with the reader on an emotional level.
And if that isn't hard enough, you also need to make it about them.
Huh? If you're going to do it right, your cover letter is not a one size fits all. It's actually your opportunity to address the problems that the employer is trying to solve in a way that shows both confidence and ability. It's not easy, which is why most people spend hours writing one and then just use it like a form letter. Unfortunately, this behaviour is part of the reason why it's hard to know if your cover letter will even get opened. More on this here.
So rather than pulling your hair out trying to write the perfect cover letter, do something completely different and WOW them with your creativity.
A videopitch is a powerful way to introduce yourself with confidence and determination. Two things employers love to see in potential candidates. Adding a video to your application and as a way of introducing yourself on your resume is uncommon enough, that it can definitely get you in the room.
