A well-written cover letter can make all the difference in your job search.

If you are a job seeker right now, you know how frustrating the job market is. It’s really hard to get a job and may even feel impossible at times. With a competitive job market like this, there isn’t any room for error, especially when it comes to your cover letter.

A mediocre cover letter is probably preventing you from moving forward in the job search process. Even the smallest of mistakes can cause your cover letter to be thrown out. However, one that is well written, will impress recruiters and hiring managers and will give you a leg up in the hiring process.

If you have been struggling to get interviews, you might be making one (or all three) of these common cover letter mistakes! Instead of continuing to make these mistakes and hope that you will get picked for an interview, take a proactive approach to your job search. A little hard work can make such a big difference. You’ve got this!

In the video above, J.T. explains what it means for your job search to be broken. She also gives you some tips on how to turn your job search around, so you can get some better results.

A broken job search means spending countless hours tweaking your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile to get them all “just right”. It means hours and hours spent applying to tons and tons of jobs, only to be auto rejected. It means you are tired, burnt out, and losing hope. When your job search is broken, you’re not going to see any success.

Instead, you need to learn how to conduct a proactive job search. Proactive job seekers know how to job shop and take control of who they want to work for. A proactive job seeker knows how to backchannel by directly contacting recruiters and hiring mangers. And most importantly, a proactive job seeker knows how to leverage their brand when interacting with potential employers.

If you are struggling in your job search, there’s a good chance your job search is broken. It’s time to ask yourself, are you going to keep doing broken job search? Or are you going to try something new?
