Writing a Cover Letter for a Web Resume

by Donny Grover

Writing a cover letter for a web resume is a little different than for a paper resume. First off, you have to understand the scope of readers you will have on your web resume. More people will be seeing your web resume so you have to write your cover letter a little more generalized. You still should focus on your acheivements and quantifying your experience. But, when it comes to defining your career goals and objectives you must leave a lot for the reader to fill-in. If your too specific on the job you desire then you may elimate yourself from those random job offers that may steer you in another direction. Many Dynamic Web Resume customers contact us with a story of how they recieved a job offer from a random company who was searching for a new employee!
