I had to send a few unsolicited resume cover letters and resumes, while looking for a good meaningful job recently. I had been working at the same place for a little over two years and recently graduated college. I was fortunate to have a job, the market being the way it is and all. Yet I still wanted to make a move for the better. Again, being that the job market was as slow as it was here in my area. I decided to go fishing a little, sending my resume and cover letter to places where I would like to work.
What I did was, learn as much about the company as I could. I was working on an unsolicited resume cover letter, after all, and sending my resume with no sort of introduction wasn’t an option. I wanted to come across genuinely interested in becoming part of the company. The best way I could figure was by finding out all I could and planting a picture of myself being part of the very fabric of the company.
I put together a resume cover letter that accentuated my skills and recent achievements. I also, placed much emphasis on my desire to become part of a company that was at the front of my chosen career. In an effort to stand out, I directed if to the company President and made sure HR received a copy also. I didn’t want to step on any ones toes. You know how that can go.
I also made sure to point out the position I wanted and how I would be diligent at accomplishing my goal of becoming an asset to the company. While at the same time I understood that I had to work my way up and would be willing to start in a different area of the company where my talents could also be utilized. I know how to be an asset to a company and working my way up wouldn’t be a problem. I just need an opportunity.
I did land a few interviews from doing this and though I haven’t been hired on the spot. I have been called back on second interviews. The detail, I think was in the way I put together my unsolicited resume cover letter. I don’t think I would have accomplished anything if I wouldn’t have made a custom letter with details about the company. As a matter of fact, the interviewers were surprised by the knowledge I had of their companies. I do expect to be hired. Maybe I’ll do the Napoleon Hill thing and send them a certified letter every hour for a couple of days. I’ll have to try it and write an article.
