Modern-day cover letter is your introduction—of any kind—to the employer.
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!

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.
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).
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.
You're not wasting your time Jan. You can actually get Interview Intervention for free and it'll help you answer the questions when you don't have the experience. Check the front page of the www.milewalkacademy.com.
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!
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!
Thanks for sharing your concise and informative ideas for writing a good cover letter. It would be appreciated if you could provide some powerful and effective phrases for writing a cover letter in case of applying in academic institutes. Also it would be very helpful if you could enlight your advices for the freshers.
I really appreciate what you have done for us!
But have some water for your throat, please. Every time when I watch your video, it seems like your throat is so dry.
Take care of yourself well for us! Don't get me wrong, it is a just friendly reminder for you! :)
Best wishes to you, dear!
Is it smart for me to have my experience from another completely different industry on my resume when applying to a job? Example: Trainer at Mac Cosmetics now Starting on Computer Science Field.

Thank you for sharing this information with me. I have been out of the world job force for almost ten years and things have changed in so many ways during that time. Even though I have all the skills for every job I apply to, the difficult task is to get the employer to see that I am capable and well suited for the position. 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.
Jeanette, you're welcome. Head over to www.andrewlacivita.com and in the search bar put stay at home mom or stay at home parent. (It doesn't matter what you reason was for being away for 10 years.) Just use the free booklet as your guide to return to the workforce!
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.

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
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!
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.
Hi Andrew, I’m a high schooler who is applying for a senator internship. I need a one page cover letter indicating my weekly availability. I obviously have no prior experience. How can I go about this? Any information is greatly appreciated.
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."
I have viewed several "Hire Experts" videos on YouTube. I subscribed to yours. Although not the most viewed, in my opinion, the most real & relevant. Thank you! I will watch more videos and read your blog! It's true, every day is a school day!
Joan! You absolutely made my day! Thank you for that. Also, if you have not grabbed it yet, I'd purchased several thousand copies of my book Interview Intervention. I will mail it to you anywhere in the world for $7. Book is free. Shipping and Handling is $7. I also toss in the eBook and audiobook as well. I hope you get a copy while supplies last! https://www.milewalkacademy.com/p/free-hardcover-copy-of-interview-intervention
This is good advice, but I'll use it for the body of my email, not the actual cover letter where I'd like to have a little more space to make a case for why I'm passionate about the organization and would be a great fit.
I have a question. I decided that it was time to change my career direction and took time out to retrain. I am now trying to get the job, but, my previous work experience really isn’t very relevant to the direction I want to head in. Should I still list work experience first, particularly when my new qualifications are more impressive than my prior work history?
This is a rwally great video.
As a new Graduate student with some experience interning and seeking dor employment, companies always ask for couple years of experience, what is the best way to make your resume stand-out among other applicants with years experience?
Hi Andrew, I'm writing you from France! I always thought that in your cover letter you are supposed to explain why you want to work for that particular organization. In France they are called 'lettre de motivation'. What are your thoughts about this? Kind regards, Corinne
Hi, i am going to finish my graduation in next 4-6 months and i didn't have any work experience. how can i mention my education details in resume to get a call ? Will you please give me some suggestions in this regard ? I am a mechanical engineering student (masters-Italy)
Hi Andrew!, Thanks a lot for this video it actually worked for me, I got 2 job oportunities overseas a few weeks ago thanks to this video, I did not get one but they were very interested to work in the near future with me (they said that I dont take it as a rejection) but got another job offer from another country anyhow to work remotely (Im working now with them). thanks a lot again I have to say that I actually been on my search hunt outside my country since 2 or 3 years back, but I did not know how the cover letter its very important.
Alfredo! This is AWESOME news! I'm so glad my material helped you land a job. Thank you too for sharing a bit of your story! I always love to hear how my community is doing. Lots of luck with the new job!
Because he was an angel, Castiel initially expressed almost no emotion towards humans, and had little room for disobedience or feelings, as he was driven to follow his orders, although he does reveal some doubts about the morality of his orders, expressing an appreciation for the beauty of humans as Gods creations. As he spends more time with Dean, he develops empathy and affection for him, and eventually for those close to him, and humans in general. Castiels superiors begin to question his loyalty and promote Uriel to oversee him. Castiel eventually rebels against and is ostracised from heaven, leaving him deprived of most of his angelic abilities, forcing him to interact more with humans than he had previously. He is often confused by the finer details of human interaction and is blind to social norms. He allies himself with Dean, and despite his despondency over the absence of his maker and their desperate situation, Castiel continues to fight against the Apocalypse.
After his second resurrection by God, with enhanced abilities, he sees his decisions and support of freewill to have been affirmed. Castiel begins to show pride, while remaining somewhat naive with regard to consequences. Crowley is able manipulate this budding sense of pride to get Castiel to start the angelic civil war. Castiel becomes dedicated to his own decisions, and tends to pass over other opinions, even Deans, in the absence of another clear course. He eventually double-crosses Crowley, taking in the souls of Purgatory alone. He then insists on worship from his former friends. He intends to be an involved god, a better and loving god who will not abandon the world. He renounces his dedication to free will, saying that angels need a firm hand. He is quick to smite those he feels to be hypocritical and unjust, and rewards those who have faith. However, Castiel is being influenced by entities inside him - including leviathans - and his actions become erratic and violent. He realizes he is not strong enough to contain the power, and at a prompt from Sam, he goes to the brothers for help. He is apologetic and humbled; after the souls are out of him he wants to find a way to redeem himself before the brothers. He eventually takes Sams madness on himself, freeing Sam.
In episode 5.14 My Bloody Valentine, Castiel shows his deep affection towards raw meat, eating it in the room and unable to get to famine, one of the four horsemen. Here, we realize that Castiels vessel, Jimmy Novak is desiring the food which he cannot gain access to with the angel possessing him.
Castiels insanity after taking on Sams memories of Hell seems to free him of some of his guilt, though it leaves his mind scattered. He was unwilling to fight due to his belief that he is a "jinx," though Dean convinces him to help kill Dick Roman. He also expresses some fondness for Meg despite the previous animosity that existed between them. However, after getting trapped in Purgatory, Castiel seemed to have regained his sanity, though he admitted there is no way to know for sure. However, his experiences have changed his personality somewhat and he is no longer as aloof as he usually is and has displayed a fondness for human things he took for granted such as watching television, which he never understood before.
