Update: Site Problems 03/02/10

After some system updates last night, the Categories "Interviews", "Career Management" & "Resumes" cannot be accessed. The articles still exist, but the as yet unidentified problem is routing requests to an "Error 404: File Not Found!" page.

Building A Quality Targeted Cover Letter

Author: Landon Long

In a pile of resumes at least ten will be asked for a job interview and most often only one will be hired. Employers do not just pick and choose at random the candidates they want to interview and the candidates who don’t get to be so lucky, the key to an interview lies in your cover letter for the job application. A good letter can be the key to many opportunities in your search for the perfect job.
