There are essentially three ways this occurs: 1. Cover Letter 2. Email (with attached resume) 3. Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Your “cover letter” has three goals: 1. Explain why you’ve contacted the employer. 2. Provide insight on who you are and what you offer. 3. Show enthusiasm and interest in hearing (back) from the employer. You can accomplish these three goals in four sentences, which I discuss in the video. You can also grab the free download to see the exact format!

Hi Everyone! I know cover letters are tough. This is a case of quality over quantity because employers are busy and they want you to get to the point. Let me know what questions you have and I'll be happy to help. Also, make sure to grab the FREE COVER LETTER TEMPLATE: http://bit.ly/4sentencecoverletter. Now, let me have those questions!

Lovely Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you researched - Rozardner Lucky Interview Reality (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a smashing exclusive product for firefighter interview tips minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate after many years got amazing success with it.

@Andrew LaCivita I did not receive template after email completion.
Andrew LaCivita (11 months ago)
Those are set on the individual user side. When I open the videos, my captions are all off because I have set them to be off. When you open a particular video, click the CC and turn them off (if they are already on).
Rhett A (11 months ago)
Andrew LaCivita Hi Andrew. Your captions are automatically on. There is already a user option to turn captions on. For those of us that can listen effectively, your automatic captions are rather distracting. Thanks.

Hi Andrew! Love a lot of your videos, I have a question that I think you could help me out. You stated in making cover letter that we need to write "I offer XX years of experience and I am strong candidate for the position", in my case, I only have three work experiences in total of 3 years (1 year on each company), but all of my work are in a startup, a new company, and a private business which makes me do a lot of tasks from scratch and figure it out by myself, I mean the company I worked was not settled yet, so I never experience working in a settled condition (ex: multinational company or big company) which maybe they have a specific set of rules or a specific set of steps on how to perform a task/duty. I not sure how do I explain myself in the cover letter and tell them I'm the strong candidate because I didn't know whether all of my work until now is correctly performed or not since I didn't receive many guidance/mentorship and all companies I worked for is new companies which they are still developing themself. I hope you understand my question, sorry if something is not clear. Thank you very much and keep up making valuable videos! Cheers!
Andrew LaCivita (2 days ago)
Focus on what you learned by being involved in start ups! Talk about what you ARE, not what you're not. :)

Jess 28 (1 month ago)
Hi Andrew! I'm a teenager seeking casual employment for the first time, therefore have no experience working wise. In the cover letter, you state that you should say "I offer [insert number of years] years of experience [insert your specialty here] and excellent [insert related skills that will help you perform the job here] skills, which should make me a strong candidate for this opening." What should I write in this paragraph instead?
Maya Etzion Faiman (1 month ago)
Thank you for the tips! how would you approach a few gap years due to a full time stay at home mother? (I am proud of these as well!) My experience is wide and unconventional, I think that is probably my 'forte' but it is some years ago.... thanks in advance!
Maya Etzion Faiman (1 month ago)
Thank you! will look into it (:
Andrew LaCivita (1 month ago)
Maya, there are a couple things you can do, but don’t try to make an explanation in the work experience section of your resume. Just leave the gap. You can explain it in the cover letter, email, or application if you’d like. You can also put it at the very bottom of your resume. If you performed any volunteer related acts during your stay at home mom period it’s a nice touch to include those at the bottom too. Also, if you head to www.andrewlacivita.com, and type in stay at home mom in the search bar, I have a free ebook for stay at home parents!

Mikhail Memedovich (1 month ago)
Does this same rule apply to interns? The resume guide for many companies require us to put education at the top followed by professional experience since we are still students. Thanks

LS Quigley (2 months ago)
Very helpful video!! My questions is about brevity. I'm great at making short and effective points. But doing something well can often appear effortless, to which a recruiter could mistake for lessened interest. At what point is it best, in your opinion, to exhume a bit so a quick read doesn't get overlooked? Thank you Andrew!
Laurie Clarkson (2 months ago)
Thanks for the tips! I agree with your method of keeping it short and effective. Some sites have advised writing long "stories" about your accomplishments and I just don't think that is wise. Glad you agree!

However I feel that with your help I can learn the correct way of building my resume and cover letter for the job of my dreams. Thank you again for sharing your talents and May GOD Bless you for this.

what will a fresher do during writing a cover letter?? How will explain him/ herself that he/ she is worthy enough for this job without any experience??
Rikin Shah (3 months ago)
Hey Labani! Just because you don't have experience doesn't mean you're not worthy of a job. I would suggest telling a story about why you would be a good fit for the company. You can show experience from internships or be involved in organizations in school/around the community. Feel free to check out my channel/shoot me a message for more guidance for recruiting for internships/jobs as a college student.

QuarterV0id (4 months ago)
Hi Andrew! I wanted to thank you for your amazing content! This has been really helpful to me and I have one question regarding my experience and something that was asked during an interview! I also want to say I was struggling to get answers so I studied your videos and as soon as I started using your knowledge, I got answers and interviews! No job yet but it will come no doubt about it! About a recent interview I had: The interviewers was a professional recruiter and I had the feeling everything went pretty well (I used your questions, and he said they were great questions ;) I also asked some during the interview and didn't wait for the end!). One I was not prepared for: he asked about a time someone gave me feedback. What would you reply to this kind of question? I guess he wanted to see if I was open to change, progression and if I was taking into consideration feedback or so? Thank you so much Andrew and see you on the next live office! Cheers
QuarterV0id (4 months ago)
It is funny because thanks to your videos I can now tell when someone's actual work is to interview people, it makes the interview so enjoyable! I prepared a lot of questions but somehow this one never showed as I was preparing but it seemed logical.. At least now I'll know! Thank you so much for the answer, we are so lucky you offer us all this knowledge for free. Best to you!
Andrew LaCivita (4 months ago)
You're so welcome for all the material and this is a great question. Interestingly, I was asked this very question in my private monthly coaching last month. You should always be prepared for the questions "about a time when you gave or received feedback." Answer with I always like the feedback from my superiors, peers, and others because it's valuable to hear how they perceive me and feel I'm doing. I never get defensive when I receive the feedback because the most important thing about feedback is WHY they feel what they feel. I like to focus on that so I can better understand, learn, adjust, etc.

In the Marine Corps, we'd answer the phone saying, "Good morning/afternoon/evening, this is (Rank, Last Name), How may I help you sir or ma'am?" So I don't think it sounds unprofessional to type "Dear sir or ma'am."

Hey Arturo, certainly not unprofessional, but a little bit out dated in the commercial arena. Try Dear Hiring Team or Dear Hiring Official. It's a little more current.
