In this course we are going to talk about my favourite topic, the cover letter. The reason I love the cover letter is because it counts. It is the first piece of information, that first touch point with a potential influencer in your industry, that you want to work with. Whether it’s a specific cover letter for a job, or whether you are sending out a speculative email to somebody.
People often say that it’s about who you know, yes? Not so true, not so true. How many people do you know on LinkedIn? How many people do you know on Twitter? How many people’s names do you know? It’s about who knows you. Unless they know your name, that stuff doesn’t really matter. So, with this course I am going to make sure that you follow 5 steps to building those relationships, how to have impact and ensuring that they know your name, and that they are going to want to meet with you. A few years ago I made a video on YouTube and I believe it has had a lot of hits. From that, I have had tonnes and tonnes of your questions, so we are going to go through those.
In this course I am going to teach you how to:
- showcase your value to employers by producing a winning covering letter
- develop the confidence and skills to produce covering letters that will get you noticed
- better understand what the employer is looking for and learn to think like them.
This will increase your chances of securing that interview.

Great content however, adding in a written sample would be an extremely helpful next step.
