Feedback from my Cover Letter clients:

"My boss told me they got over 250 applications for my job and mine was the only one that showed direct correlation to the job in my cover letter and resume. In six days from the time I sent in my application I had the job offer. Your advice on cover letter writing made the difference." - Kelly B, New York, NY

"I just used your method today for a cover letter, and got asked back for an interview within three hours of sending it! It's a really great system and it works! Just wanted to send you a success story." - Geddes M, San Francisco, CA

"I got a job!!! I was hired today as an assistant manager for TacoBell. I submitted my resume and a fun online description like you showed me. Not even ten minutes after I submitted it, I got a call for an interview." - Jennifer F, Salt Lake City, UT

"I incorporated some of your ideas and examples into my MBA marketing classes in a lecture on Marketing Yourself. It was very helpful. On behalf of hundreds of students: Thank you!" - Ryan H, Atlanta, GA

"I got a response within half an hour of submitting my application. More importantly, I got my dream job. In fact, because of the strength of my cover letter, I was the only person my boss even bothered to interview." - Brian, Joshua Tree, CA

In this course, you'll learn to write a cover letter that attracts the attention of hiring managers, and positions you as an ideal candidate for the job. The lectures get right to the point so that you can learn exactly what you need to know and how to apply it as quickly as possible.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for anyone who needs to write a cover letter to apply for a job.

I want to help you get your dream career.

Learn job skills from someone with real world experience.

I may be the only person you'll meet who is this passionate about the "job hunt" and NOT an HR coach. I consider that to be a good thing.

Most career coaches give the same "best practices" advice, and while some of it's useful, it never gets to the heart of what you really need to do to get a job, making the process way more stressful than it needs to be. I'm very systematic by nature, so when I was looking for a new job in 2007, I developed my own methods and strategies, and tracked what worked and what didn't. I started to see patterns I'd never considered (and never heard!) before.

After I got a great new job (at a much better company with a much better salary than what I left), I started helping my friends brush up on their resumes and cover letters, but I found I was spending a lot of time on each person. I put my experience into a powerpoint presentation and sent the link to my friends when they needed help. That presentation has now been seen 40,000 times, with several hundred downloads. It's even been incorporated into MBA training.

I knew I had "cracked the code" when I started receiving success story after success story from people who had applied my training; this system doesn't just work for me, it WORKS. I've now taught workshops across the country, and have learned a lot about people's challenges that are much different than my own.

I've put together my training on Udemy as a way to help more people. This platform allows me to add worksheets, practice downloads, and in-depth material. In addition, I can go really deep in the lectures while maintaining an easy-to-follow format. It has been a lot of work to build this out, but I want to teach it in the best possible way so that students can fully understand every step of the process.
