Interviewing & Cover Letter Job Tips
Clear Rock – Abridged
BOSTON, MA – Finding a new job in the new year will be a lot easier and rewarding if people follow these number-related job search strategies, according to ClearRock, an executive coaching and outplacement firm headquartered in Boston.
2 Minutes – That’s about how long you should spend describing who you are and what you do in response to a question such as “tell me about yourself.” 7% words, 38% tone and 55% body language – That’s the formula for success in communicating during job interviews and networking meetings. 75% – Make eye contact with the interviewer around 75% of the time. Be sure you have at least 70% of the qualifications when answering a job ad.
Leave about 25% white space on your cover letter by using bullets, columns, etc. The more skillfully laid out the cover letter, the better chance it will be read. Five is the maximum number of bullets about yourself and your experience that anyone wants to see in a cover letter. Three is the maximum amount of contacts to use in a cover letter – always include home phone, mobile phone, and personal e-mail address.
