Format: Paperback
I cannot say enough good things about this book. I have the 1995 edition that I purchased as a destitute college grad. Aside from my education, this book was probably one of the best investments I have made in my career. The book details how to write thoughtful, meaningful, and impactful (if that's a word) cover letters and thank you letters. As others have written, I have received so many complements from potential employers after having used the techniques in this book. I definitely recommend using it if you want to stand out. It has served me well.

Format: Paperback
I have known Randall Hansen for several years and always been impressed with his level of knowledge and caring for the needs of job seekers. He and his wife Katherine have crafted an absolutely fabulous resource that all job seekers, from entry level to the most experienced, should find incredibly useful.
As the Founder and President of job board CollegeRecruiter.com, I make the final decision about which products to recommend to our users. "Dynamic Cover Letters" easily made the cut. It is a wonderful resource!

I used this book to create my cover letter. Potential employers have praised my cover letter; a recruiter asked me if she could use the same format for her career search.
