Tania Khadder | NursingLink

We talk about them all the time: cover letters.

We share general tips, explore best practices, and warn of the most common cover letter mistakes.

What we haven’t done is give you specific examples of real cover letters that worked. Until now!

NursingLink has tracked down five cover letters that helped job seekers land an interview. Sometimes, they even got the job. Each one is different, but they all — in one way or another — manage to avoid some of the most common blunders.

    I hate that instead of this article being on one page you need to scroll down to read, I have to click to each section. It's a choppy and obnoxious thing to do to a perfectly good article.
