And now for a novel approach: a cover letter and resume for the book itself, applying for the "job" of helping you Get A Job!

You're about to learn job search secrets most people don't have a clue even exist...

If you want to stand out above your job search competitors, learn how to write a powerful resume that gets you noticed for all the right reasons, with a cover letter that grabs attention and other tips and tactics for every step of the job search from finding jobs to job interview questions all the way through salary negotiations and how to start off in the best way possible, read on.

Disclaimer: this cover letter is a bit longer than you would actually use in a real job search. I chose to make it longer to help show as much value as I could in just one web page. There is also a sneak peek inside so you can see the very thorough table of contents and index for the book.

Ms. Youneeda Goodjob

Job Seeker

YOU, Inc.

1234 Your St.

Yourtown, ST 12345

Dear Ms. Goodjob:

I am writing to you because you are looking for a better job, maybe because you are in a dead-end job or in imminent danger of being downsized, laid off, or fired. Perhaps you have grown beyond your current position but there is no opportunity for growth where you are currently working. Or maybe you are not just underemployed - you have already become unemployed. Possibly you are happy where you are, but have no idea where you want to be in 5 years, 10 years, or even 2 years. Maybe it has been a while since you have looked for a job and don't know how much the job search and recruitment game has changed and you need practical employment tips. Whatever the case, I am confident that I can help you. I'm applying for the job of giving you career advice, helping you with your career and getting you the dream job you deserve.

I'm a book entitled Get A Job! Your Guide to Making Successful Career Moves. I help people find better jobs, write great resumes (or CVs) and cover letters, and help people research companies and perform better in job interviews. Since even before I was published, I've helped many job seekers get the dream jobs they've been looking for, make more money, move forward in their careers, and strategize on how they can position themselves for promotions, lateral moves, international roles, and new jobs in exciting companies. I've included a number of recommendations and testimonials on this website below my resume. I've even helped people secure 40% or more increases in salary!

Face it, it doesn't matter what color your parachute is if it doesn't open! Are you worried that a resume for dummies will only lead to a job for a complete idiot? You don't need resume magic - you need real-world advice that really works, so you can too! Why settle for a damn good resume when you need a great resume? You don't need 201 resumes - you just need the few that work for you and that are highly targeted to the dream job you are searching for.

I don't mean to be harsh - bluntly forward, yes, but harsh? No. This is something that I feel strongly about and it's SO important! It boils down to a choice - are you going to drift along your career like a jellyfish in the ocean, hoping you'll end up someplace nice, and hoping that your boss will "give" you a raise? Or are you going to be proactive and take charge of your career path, and both start earning what you are worth and make yourself worth more and more (and earn more and more) each year? Are you going to relish going to work each day, knowing that you're providing more and more for your family, working towards your future, saving & investing for retirement, and so on, or are you going to keep complaining about how hard it is, dreading Mondays, and wondering how you're going to keep living paycheck to paycheck?

I am confident that I would be an excellent fit for your job search needs. In order to help you make your decision as easily as possible, I've taken the time to outline your requirements as I understand them, and have addressed each of them with how I can help you.

YOUR JOB-HUNTING REQUIREMENTS MY QUALIFICATIONS
An effective cover letter to get the attention of recruiters, hiring managers, and key decision-makers. Full of accurate, current information and advice on how to write cover letters that showcase your skills and experience, customized to the job you're applying for, that really grab the reader's attention and help you get the job interviews you need.
A powerful resume that positions your skills, experience, and accomplishments in the best light so you'll get called in for more interviews, faster. Clear, easy-to-read book written by a seasoned professional with the knowledge of how to write a resume that gets you noticed and helps avoid the pitfalls that so many resumes contain (you know, the resumes that end up in the garbage can instead of orientation day and new hire training).
"Secret knowledge", tips and advice to help you better leverage people, processes and technology to make your job search easier, faster, and accomplished with less effort. Real-world advice that really works, so you can too! I've examined the job search from a process improvement standpoint and identified ways to streamline & improve the job search process, reducing the effort required to Get A Job! Networking tips, technology tips, and more are covered in enough detail to make a real difference in your job search, but not so much detail that you'll fall asleep reading it! Some of the advice in the book I've NEVER seen anywhere else!
Convenient, portable formats whether you prefer a paperback or e-book. 346-page paperback book full of resources, tools, tips, and advice. Searchable e-book available for instant download any time, day or night, with active links to save you time and effort. Mobipocket version so you can read it on the go - even as a quick refresher just before the interview, as convenient as your cell phone.
Solid return on investment (after all, in this economy every penny you spend matters more than ever!)Backed up by a 100%, 365 - 1/4 day guarantee! For example, take the case of the person who earned a 40% increase in salary after my help. Now of course I would never reveal her actual salary, but let's assume she was making $50K / year, and is now at $70K/ year (not counting bonuses, performance incentives, better benefits, satisfaction of working in her dream job, etc.). Get A Job! costs only $27.95, which would be (in the case above) a benefit of $20,000, or a 71,556% ROI.
Current information about what matters now in a job search. Up-to-date information on how to find a job NOW - not just using old-school methods (though I'll be sure to help you use the time-tested ones that work) but also practical, step-by-step information on how to use the latest Web 2.0 applications, social networking sites, video sites, and more to help you Get A Job! Fast!
Resources on where to find company contacts, information, recruiters, websites and more. Over 80 sources on where to find information on a company including how their business is doing, key contacts within companies, their corporate strategy, financial outlook, employee hiring rates & attrition rates, client reviews of their products & services, and more. 160+ international organizations for you job seekers working overseas or looking for an international job. Departments of Labor throughout the U.S. And a giant list of over 860 recruiters and staffing firms around the world, categorized by industry and area of expertise so that you don't waste your time sending your resume to a recruiter that can't help you.

If for any reason, you're not satisfied (though I can't imagine why you wouldn't be) at any time within 90 days, I will refund 100% of the purchase price, PLUS you still get to keep ALL of the bonuses. Furthermore, PayPal protects buyers 100% against unauthorized payments sent from their accounts.

    About the author

    David B. Wright has worked in the U.S. and Japan, and has done business around the world. He has helped many people get better jobs via his book, resume writing services, career coaching, and career strategy sessions. He has worked in a variety of roles, ranging from small to large companies and has had a unique and unusual career path. David has been on both sides of the hiring desk, and has had to develop powerful job-hunting skills because of his atypical background, skill set, and career path. Because he has worked in different functions, different industries and in different parts of the world, he often faced a challenge because his experience didn't match the standard 'job requirement' pigeonholes that many companies use when they look to hire new people. Therefore, he had to learn how to write a high-impact resume, cover letter, and to create the rest of the tools in the "job search toolbox" of techniques described in this book. He also extensively looked at the job search process from the standpoint of how to make that process easier, faster, and more automated.
