job seekers today are tempted to skip the cover letter. Think
twice before doing so. The cover letter is just as important as
the resumé. For first time entry-level professionals or
individuals seeking a career change, they are a must have.
Of the many resumés we critique every week applying for offshore
oil rig jobs, only a small number include a cover
letter. Including a well written cover letter is a very easy way
to get ahead of your competition (which there is a lot of). When employers look at resumés, this is the process they
- They look to see if your experience, abilities, skills
and education match their job requirements.
- If so, they look to see if you are a reliable person
with a good work history.
The application / hiring process goes like this:
- A company has several ads posted for various
- They receive an enormous number of resumés / job
applications for each ad.
- Once they have picked out the candidates having the
proper qualifications, they start looking at
presentation. How well do you present yourself? The
ones making the best presentations go to the top of the
list, sometimes even before those with better experience, education,
This is not rocket science. The number of people looking for
offshore jobs has
gone up 7 fold in the last nine months. Most of these folks are hard
working, dedicated men and women with a lot to offer. And most are doomed to failure
because they are not using good job hunting procedures. The
worst thing you can do in your job hunt is to use an outdated or
poorly written resumé with no cover letter. This is what most
people use which means you have an insider opportunity that
others do not.
Regardless of what anyone
else says, (unless you have an inside connection that
will hook you up), there are
three basic things
you need to get a job offshore. If you have them, and are persistent,
eventually you will get hired. If you do not have them,
I doubt you will ever hear from anyone. Here they are:
- A positive, never
give up, do what ever it takes attitude
- A winning cover
letter / resumé combination
- A reliable contact

The main ingredient of the cover letter is "SELL"
When you apply for a job you are
yourself" as to why your skills, abilities,
education and experience should be considered above all
others. Because I have many years experience in doing
to an employer
better than you can.
Having an outstanding, professionally written cover letter /
resumé package is the best way known to
put serious distance
between you and your competition. Remember, everything
else being equal the consideration is going to the one who presents
themselves in the most professional manner.
Think of a house for sale. Most house hunters will judge the house by what
it looks like from the road. Realtors call it curb appeal. The house may be
ideal on the inside. BUT if the front looks run down and neglected, buyers won’t
bother walking through the door.
The majority of the cover letters and resumés I see have a
run down, neglected look and don't produce much more than a lot
People work better than
they write. In my 15 plus years of providing
this service, I have seen, read and thrown away
thousands of different types of cover letters and resumés
they did not represent
the person for the professional they are.
After much trial and error, I
developed a method where I can take your skills, abilities,
experience, education, goals, determination and motivation and,
adding the element of "SELL", produce a document that will
get you hired!
a cover letter is a little window into your personality and
will give the recruiter a better look at what you are all about. A
good cover letter will suggest to an employer, "I'm
going to interview this person; they sound like just the kind of
dynamic person we are looking for."
writing of this nature is not an easy thing to do
which is why
