Winning Résumés and Cover Letters: Writing Application Materials that Get Results. Although hundreds of books and software programs offer “successful” cover letters and résumés that prospective job applicants can model, these “plug-n’-chug” application documents do little to showcase the talents an individual could offer an organization. Recognizing the increasing need for job applicants to present unique contributions and abilities to prospective employers, this full-day seminar offers strategies for replacing commonplace, generic cover letters and résumés with documents that highlight what you can offer an organization—in ways that stand out to potential employers.
