It's no secret that one key to successful cover letters is to thoroughly check for loose ends in your so called "finished" cover letter. In an uncertain job market, can you afford to be less perfect than your competition?

Did you know that your chances of facing a full time, professional career interviewer is as low as 9%? Why is this fact critical?

That leaves nearly 91% of untrained or semi trained interviewers. Are you facing someone who was just "elected" to interview you? This "volunteer" will most likely see your cover letter for the first time at your interview. Have ever heard a fellow worker say, "I got stuck interviewing someone today"? I have - a number of times - even by follow employers. This is life. Think about it.

For a nonprofessional interviewer, you can be a disruptive annoyance. So your cover letter must do double duty; sell you all the while avoiding any excuses to wash you out.

This means if you ignore minor details such as mixing the wrong fonts, a nitpicking or annoyed "interviewer", more interested in form than substance, may feed your cover letter to a shredder.

Typically, when marching through checklists, especially ones that lump similar ideas, you may turn into a mindless, inattentive zombie, where one predictably questions leads to mechanical answers. Checklists are boring by nature because they hunt down mistakes you never made. :)

The check list below is intended to jar you, to disrupt your comfort zone, to dislodge you logic, to make you think and force you to rethink your thoughts.

If you are convinced, or even please with yourself, that you wrote an effective, focused cover letter, be careful. Becoming convinced about anything can lead to self-deception. A checklist can help you avoid this trap.

Miss correcting an item? Forgot to remedy an issue? Kiss your interview goodbye! Sloppy does not get invited to job interviews, or even worse, pass one!
