It's all about getting that interview. A strong cover letter and resume sets you apart from other applicants and increases your chances of being invited to an interview. The interview, the thank you response, and negotiating the offer are critical steps in landing that perfect position for you.
Confirming the interview
Your hiring success begins before you apply for a job. All correspondence with a potential employer is evidence using to hire, or not hire you. Think of each step of the process as part of an interview.
Interviews are all about making a good impression. There are many facets to consider such as conversation strategies, body language, and attire that could affect your big moment.
