Top 10 Resume Cover Letter Tips

1) Avoid spelling and grammar mistakes
2) Express long-term interest
3) Apply locally
4) Paint a clear picture of your intended position
5) Build your case to win
6) Be professional
7) Inject your personality
8) Don't play the Destiny Card
9) Express your greatness
10) Apply for work that matches your skills and experience
