5 Real Cover Letters That Worked

Mistake: Not Customizing

When you’re looking for a nursing job, you’ll send out dozens, maybe even hundreds of resumes and cover letters. Make sure you’re not sending the exact same one to every hospital. An overly generic cover letter, or one that is addressed to the wrong person, will most likely be sent to trash.

The Solution: Always research and proofread.

Take your time with each send, and be thorough in your proofreading. Double and triple check for the names of the organization and hiring manager are correct. Where possible, try and show that you’ve done your research on the hospital.

We all know that landing a job, in some ways, is a game of numbers. But don’t let quantity trump quality. You can send out a million applications but if they’re sloppy, you might as well have sent out zero.

    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.
