Resume Vs. Cover Letter – What is The Difference?

This a question that often comes up when I’m doing the By Me Journey coaching calls – what is the difference between the resume and the cover letter?

The goal of the Cover Letter is to sell them on meeting you in person so you can demonstrate how you can help them win.

The goal of the Resume is to sell them on how your experience and skills enable you to deliver the results that you promised on your Cover Letter.

Sometimes people even wonder if why they should even bother to write a cover letter.

Here’s some good reasons for you to do your best work on your cover letter

A Simple Way To Sell People On Why They Should Care About You

You’re trying to write your cover letter but… it’s hard, right?

Join This 10 Second Research on Cold Calling

I’m running this research after hearing so many people complaining about getting “cold calls” and having to deal with it.

Think about it – you get interrupted only to wonder who the hell is calling you.

Then you notice that you don’t even have that number on your contact list…

You pick it up and it’s someone trying to sell you something you couldn’t care less about.

Now, I tried to see if there’s any data that captures people’s emotions when they get a call from a number they don’t know.

I got nothing. Please share it if you know of something like that.

Anyway, so I made this simple survey that it literally takes 10 seconds or less to complete.

Please share it with others so we can get as many results as possible!

Thank you!
