Course Description

Are you tired of getting rejection after rejection? Feel you have a solid CV, set of skills and work experience? Yet still...you are not sure what the problem is?

I'm about to reveal to you the hidden secret of that no one is talking about....

If you want to get more follow up phone calls, more invitations to interviews, more job offers than ever before...well

I can help you!

Cover Letters are a critical part to making a Top-Tier application. It adds a level of focus to your application that will make you stand out amongst the stack of all other applicants.

I've been through the experience of myself of getting rejection after rejection and being frustrated as I WAS following alot of the advice I was reading online.

What I discovered was that the so called 'GURUS' had never even worked within the Corporation alot of the time, and had limited experiences of success. Furthermore the level of GENERIC information meant that I wasn't ever able to really able to build a truly unique Cover Letter

I didn't even appreciate how IMPORTANT a Cover Letter is to your application! And it seems it's not just me that thinks this:

'Your resume is important, but nothing can replace a well-written cover letter' - Business Insider

'Covering letters are more important than your CV' The Financial Times

' A cover letter is an important document sent along with your CV' The Telegraph

Having successfully landed a job at Deloitte as an ARTS student I've since gone on to help hundreds of people with their applications. If you want to build a truly killer cover letter I'll walk you through this guide and give you an AMAZING and the ONLY template you'll ever need alongside the knowledge and tools for super customisation :)

Curriculum

01:34

Hi folks,

In this video I'll be taking you through what you can expect from this course!

Section 1: The Overview of the Cover Letter And Who I Am
02:33

In this lecture we will be discussing what a Cover Letter is, and why it's a valuable tool even in today's world.

Discover it's importance as being a critical part of your application and why it can make all the difference in your chances of getting called back to interview!

Also - the MAJORITY of top firms ask for a Cover Letter still today :)

01:54

Cover Letters really can be the key difference between success and failure in terms of you getting to interview or well...not getting to interview.

Not enough people out there recognise this.

In this video we discuss what the difference that spending some focussed time upon your Cover Letter can really do for you

06:21

Who is it that your Cover Letter is targeting?

Is it the Recruiter? The Company Direct or a Friend/Acquaintance?

With each case they require something of a different approach, and in this video I run through these approaches!

Section 2: Understanding the Power of Three Within Your Cover Letter
04:32

In this lecture we look at how the power of three is a powerful tool that can work in your favour to build an awesome Cover Letter.

It is a tool that is used widely throughout literature, movies and more - and you can incorporate it to your decided advantage.

Find out more in the lecture

04:26

We go through one of the important parts of the rule of three here - which is Why the Position and the Industry.

What is it specifically about this role, within a specific sector that you find interesting?

Avoid generic phrases and work with something that shows you have done independent research - and here I show you it can be quicker than you think to get it done :)

07:59

Here we discuss the company itself and it's importance in building out your Cover Letter.

It's important you display a level of unique and independent research here. Everyone is all too ready to quote something they read on Page 1 of Wikipedia or the company homepage - and research needs to extend beyond this.

I discuss some of the secrets to success in this lecture!

02:17

One of the critical things is connecting you to the company and how you can try and build a personal connection to the business even in the space of the Cover Letter.

This will really impress a recruiter - but of course the question is - 'How do you do it?'

This video explains

1 question

What are the three elements?

02:07

What is it that makes you personally stand out from the pack?

That separates you as an applicant against all others?

What is your unique contribution to the world? Or what is it that you have done that is incredibly impressive?

Worried? Well don't be - in the video I give you my advice as to how to approach this

Section 3: The Final Furlong - Breaking it down part by part
04:18

This is perhaps the most important video in the course - and the one left till last as it is vital you go through all of the other steps else you will build a sub-par Cover Letter.

The video contains the template that I use with my clients - and talks you through it.

This lecture explains that - but also why you must really work to personalise it - and how you can do that :)

01:08

Here is a well done, alongside a special gift for completing the course - enjoy :)
