I’m often asked how to tell if a cover letter is good. My answer is simple: Did you get them at “hello,” or did you bore them to tears?

It’s the best way to “hook” the hiring manager into checking out your credentials. You are 10X more likely to get considered for the job if you pass my cover letter effectiveness test!
