New cover letter template now available

As promised, I've uploaded a new cover letter template to Dropbox that you are free to download, edit, make your own, and use to help you land the job of your dreams.

The cover letter is quite basic but will work for a variety of jobs and/or volunteer opportunities. And even if a job ad (or the hiring manager) doesn't specifically request a cover letter, be sure to include one as it can help you land a job. For example, years ago when I was in high school, I was given an interview with a large retail chain based on my cover letter - the hiring manager didn't even look at my resume or cover letter.

If you haven't written a cover letter before, be sure to check out my top 5 tips on how to make your cover letter stand out.
