How To Write A Kick-Ass Cover Letter

So, you're applying for jobs after College. No doubt you've googled "how to write a cover letter" more often than you check your Vingle account. You're frustrated, scared and ultimately asking more questions than can be answered.
Don't worry, I've been there. So I whipped up this post on how to write a kick-ass cover letter that will not only show your personality, but will appeal to your employers on a visceral level, setting you apart from the hundreds, or thousands of other applicants in your way.

First, you must consider your audience.

If you're writing to a hip, young company your style of voice would be different than if you're writing to an established, formal company. This is perhaps the most important part of cover letter writing.
There's a bit more freedom when you're trying to work for an online outfit or something that is aimed at a young demographic. This often varies by profession, but usually with any of the creatives, it's fine to go a bit off the rails.
For formal letters, adhere closely to the accepted format, here's where your googling will help, you can download a template here. These are typically demanded by professions in finance, science, mathematics, education, law and administration. This is just a straight-up generalization, but is usually accurate.
For more free-flow letters you can write with a stylized voice that acknowledges the "fun" involved in the job. Professions like writing, music, non-profit work, theater and many more have less-strict rules and really appreciate when applicants get creative. (See my sample letter at the bottom of the post for an example)

After you've considered your style, you have to put yourself in the potential employer's shoes.

Imagine that you're in the boss' chair. You wouldn't want to read hundreds of dry-ass, boring cover letters all day. You'd probably want something with a bit of humor, that sticks out. It'd probably make your day for someone to do something different.
You should be that different thing! The secret to writing an amazing cover letter is to BE YOURSELF. If you're crass and sarcastic, go there with your writing! If you can't be authentic from the get-go, you won't be happy.
If they don't want you for who you are, you're probably not going to fit in at the company either, and who wants to pretend to be something they're not?

Here is an actual cover letter I sent out to a magazine shortly before my senior year of college.

The name of the magazine and publisher have been withheld:
Dear *&#^$@!#$,
I'm a recent college graduate and I'm buried in debt. I'd like a salary above the poverty line, with some room for my rent and a comfortable lifestyle.
I don't need much, and I've lived modestly and below the average my whole life, as my father is unemployed and my mother works as a retail manager. I've always made my own way. Salary isn't a deal breaker for me, as I am more hungry for a career than for money. I'm a hard worker, a quick learner and someone who gives everything for what they believe in.
I think I could make a difference at @#$% and provide a perspective that is underrepresented in media. We grow up looking at outlaw writers as warped men or unattainable party girls. To get behind what's happening in the twenty-something sphere, and not just in a "omg these gifs totally get me" kind of way, you need someone who is honest, candid and does attempt to hit standards set by the media. I can be that person. I have nothing to lose, no ties to anywhere.
I've got other offers on the table, but would gladly take a turn at your company over them. Just being honest.
All I have are my ideas, my qualifications and my experiences. I will graduate in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting and a minor in Journalism from the Scripps School.I'm just trying to get a head start as only God knows where jobs come from these days. I started off as a Journalism major, but was told I couldn't write in an interactive way, and told them to shove it.
I've been in the media world my whole life. My dad, now semi-retired, was an Emmy and Golden Mic award winning journalist for KVOA in Los Angeles, and has reported on OJ, Michael, earthquakes and murders. I was never shielded from these events, and carry his skills along with the ones I developed in school.
If you take a chance on me, a shambolic young woman with some big ideas, then I will work as hard as possible to make them a reality. I love the pieces in your magazine. They're edgy, clear, risky and dangerous.
The world needs more writing like that. I can create that writing. Thanks for considering me.
You can reach me at &#*$(@) And you can read my current writing on my blog (duh). I'm aware that some of it is a little raw, but hey...what can you do?
Tess Stevens
How did it end you ask?
I was rejected, but that's not the point. I'm proud of this cover letter. Frankly it's one of the best things I've ever written, because it's truthful. It's indicative of my true self. It doesn't matter that I never heard back.

It's a kick-ass cover letter, and now you can write one too!

yeah I def think it's worth creating, it's just so time consuming and I'm lazy. that's why I keep one on file and just tweak it ever so often.
Maybe hand write a cover letter on a post-it and stick it to the resume. The small space means less time writing and worrying. Plus, there's only room for the best parts of you. 😂😁😅
@SatyaKaul hahaha I feel like that's what we're all thinking when we write these damn things! Lol
@jordanhamilton yay! I think people hate them so much because we tend to view them as "cold and impersonal" I say, just go for it...obviously hahah. If you put your personality into it you'll definitely have more success! It is a big risk, you just have to be willing to take it.
i absolutely despise writing cover letters. this card made me rather happy.

EMS Suits as Pain Relievers. Does EMS Training Really Reduce Pain?
Electrical muscle stimulation training is increasingly becoming popular due to its effectiveness in building muscles, toning, and losing weight. However, the benefits of EMS extend beyond fitness to encompass tackling pain, particularly back and knee pain. Does EMS Training Really Reduce pain? Here are some points for you. Using EMS Suit to Tackle Back Pain Back pain, notably lower back pain, is a common health problem across the globe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2018, 28% of men and 32% of women reported having experienced lower back pain at least once in the last three months. These statistics indicate the prevalence of the condition in the USA. And it is insane, to say the least. Back pain adversely affects performance at work and general well-being, lowering the quality of life. Lower back pain can either be acute, sub-acute, or chronic. There are several risk factors associated with lower back pain, including occupational posture, age, height, excessive weight, and depressive moods. Whether your back pain is linked to spending hours over a desk or a previous injury, EMS suits offer the most convenient solution to reducing your back pain and improving your quality of life. EMS Suit and Back Pain Treatment The role of EMS in relieving pain is grounded on the exercise it provides to muscles and joints. Many people do not recognize the benefits of exercising when it comes to pain reduction. There is an ongoing myth that exercising aggravates back pain and increases discomfort. However, this is not the case if your form is correct. How EMS Workouts Reduce Lower Back Pain EMS workouts strengthen muscles hence reduction of back-related pain. When the electrodes are applied to the skin above the muscles, the electrical currents intensify muscle contraction externally. EMS training suit also helps with pain management through closing the nerve “gates’ that transfer pain messages to the brain. The ability of EMS to close nerve “gates” is grounded on the “gate control” theory of pain. The gate control theory of pain hypothesizes that non-painful stimulus, for instance, electrical currents, can close nerve gates that transfer the pain signal to the brain. EMS workouts strengthen muscles, especially around the spine and the core, and improve posture, thus reducing the risk of back pain. EMS training is typically low-impact and, as such unlikely to cause unnecessary strain on joints muscles. Unlike traditional working out where you need to spend hours on end at the gym, with EMS, you only need 20 minutes every couple of days, reducing strain on muscles while allowing the body time to regenerate between sessions. As you can see, EMS suits is a progressive technique to back pain management. It is not only cheap but also time-sensitive.

EMS Suit for Knee Pain Treatment Another common type of acute and sub-acute pain globally is the patellofemoral pain syndrome, commonly referred to as “runner’s knee.” Runner’s knee is associated with pain around or under the kneecap. Pain management for a runner’s knee often encompasses a therapeutic exercise program. Patellofemoral pain syndrome occurs when nerves sense pain in the soft tissue and bone around the knee cap. EMS training is a therapy that reduces knee pain since the electrodes placed over the muscle of the affected leg provide message and mobilization. EMS workouts are, as such, also ideal for individuals recovering from a knee injury. For more visit brute suits eBay store.

Do I require exceptional shoes for Spartan Race?
The ideal shoe to wear at a deterrent race should have sufficient foothold and dependability to explore through the hindrances without slipping or falling. Furthermore, most Spartan Race courses include trail running, and in this way, there could be no more fabulous shoes to wear than authentic path running shoes. One of the main concerns somebody has when arranging their first hindrance course race or mud run is the unit they need. Frequently the most significant inquiry is "The thing that are the best shoes for OCR."

Footing All through a standard deterrent race, the path is sporadic and loaded with rough minor scale hindrances like roots, rocks, free sand, mud, and water. Thus, you'll need a forceful footing framework to confront various territory varieties. If your present running shoes have a level outsole with just a waffle-like surface, you're in danger of slipping and get harmed. Indeed, even with the best help and padding, your exercise center shoes are futile during a sloppy deterrent race. Water seepage Water seepage and fast-drying capacities are essential highlights to search for while picking a decent pair of shoes for your next Spartan Race. Be that as it may, waterproof should keep waterproof shoes produced using Gore-Tex away from because they also block the water from going out. Moreover, those shoes are heavier due to the significant overlay. As a Spartan Race, it is unavoidable to step in a deep water puddle during an impediment race. Rather than attempting to keep the water from coming (where is unimaginable when your feet are lowered in water), get the Best Shoes For Spartan Race with a respectable water seepage framework.

The primary concern, you'll save energy with lightweight running shoes. Adaptability Your feet need the capacity to move openly and rapidly adjust to any surface. Consequently, the adaptability of your shoes is essential for execution, and it's considerably more basic to stay away from wounds. Then again, the durability is additionally helpful to avoid potential wounds. For example, a shoe with an excess of adaptability can prompt a curved lower leg or foot crack. A decent pair of trail running shoes will have that optimal harmony among adaptability and durability. The toe box is adequately adaptable to adjust to the challenging path and obstructions, while the remainder of the shoe is vigorous and shock retentive. Upper With a course loaded up with soil and rock, it's crucial to wear a shoe to keep such irritating flotsam and jetsam from infiltrating. But, unfortunately, ordinary running shoes are made of the breathable cross-section that let such interlopers collect inside the shoe. In this manner, search for the path running shoes with an enemy of garbage upper that squares such trespassers. Additionally, curved guards and toe guards are advantageous to save the uprightness of the shoe. FAQs Is Salomon Speedcross 4 waterproof?

This blog is for you if you try to be organized but wind up with more things at the end of the day. Even if you are not as structured as you would like to be, your life will be transformed for the better as a result of your decision. It's easy; simply keep reading for the 5 essential suggestions for a more organized living! 1. Try to Keep Your Belongings to Minimal Level Have you ever noticed how minimalist homes are organized? It is considerably easier to keep order when you have fewer items. Nonetheless, you don't have to stop at a few things (unless you want to), declutter your home office, or get rid of your children's toys. To get rid of rejected stuff, you only need to transport fresh products home less frequently. They won't be missed. And by this point, you're not going to miss packing everything to capacity. 2. Group Items that are Similar Together An organizational structure can be easily maintained if it is practical. Many individuals prefer things that come in groups. That is, you keep the same thing in the same place so you know where to look for it. This principle applies to everyday items such as kitchen utensils, tools, and toys. When everything has a home, you'll be able to put things away quickly once you've finished using them. 3. Create a Piling Zone You risk causing stress in your home and sabotaging your organized efforts by creating a jumble of temporary merchandise you don't know where and how to put. A donation bag of clothing, library books that must be returned, objects to be recycled, or items returned to a retailer are examples of such products. To avoid inviting these things to take your home, set up a tiny staging area. 4. Keep Spare Items in a Drawer A junk drawer will relieve you of the burden of sorting little, disparate objects. This area can, however, be confined to one or two drawers or small storage bins. When too many garbage spaces become a source of chaos, they will sabotage your organized efforts. Group similar objects together in the space so you know what's within. Drawer splitters can assist keep rubber bands, batteries, twist links, and other everyday things in order. 5. Don't Try to Be Perfect all of the Time It is really difficult to be entirely prepared for any level. If the firm's efforts aren't perfect, don't give up. It's simpler to be semi-organized than it is to be disorganized. If you don't have time to file a stack of paper, for example, simply straighten it into a neat stack and store it next to your file files, and you'll be one step closer to properly filing them when the time comes. Small steps like these could make a well-ordered existence feel even more manageable. Storage containers are a lifesaver.

Why Tracking Your Progress Will Make You Hate Yourself Less
Self acceptance is nearly impossible. In our twenties it's hard to accept anything: change, graduating from college, moving to a new city, our bodies, our careers. In the fog where we facebook stalk our "more successful" friends and get down on ourselves for not being "put together", its easy to get caught up in the "I suck" mantra. No inspirational quote can help with whatever deep-seeded self-doubt we've developed over the years, but I've discovered something that can: Tracking your progress. Now this may sound a little bit ridiculous, considering the depth of what we're talking about, but planning and tracking my daily tasks, goals and challenges has changed my life. I bought a planner after envying countless women on Youtube who were way more put together than me. When I saw these people on the screen with their pastel colored worlds, shiny smiles and perfect make-up...I wanted to be like them. I didn't want to trade in my spontaneous edge and chaos for a square life filled with methodical primping and planning, but I did want to achieve more of a balance.When you spend so much time in a free-fall that it becomes a routine, you have to change. So I purchased the Create 365 Happy Planner, which, by name seems a little stupid, but has honestly changed the way I do everything. Planning things out has never been my strong-suit, but today I look down at an organized week full of goals, quotes, stickers and decorations and think, man...life is a lot easier than I have been making it. When I stare at a blank week in my little book of revelations, things seem a lot more hopeful. It displays the choices I can make to get better, or worse. I am tracking each move I make. I am being more conscious. Planning things out, and encouraging myself to think forward, but not ahead has brought me a sense of calm unlike any other. For once the chaos in my head melted away. The responsibility lands on my planner now. If I write it down and look at it every day, I can get it done. The point is, once I started actually using the God damn thing I've started to hate myself less. I plan every Sunday. It is my hour to sit and really think about the next week and what I want to accomplish. It's a time for reflection on what worked the week before, and what didn't. It's a time for me to look at myself and be like, "hey, are you doing the best you can, or are you fucking up a little bit?" And that answer comes out in the plan. Recently I've gotten serious about getting sober, at least for a little while. And each day I go without drinking is a little victory. In the book of revelations I have five tick marks. Once I reach a week I'll put down a little sticker with a smile. Tracking progress. No matter how banal and idiotic it may seem, is helping me get over my demons. It's helping me be a better person. Each day I eat healthy, I write down a little note like, "Good job not screwing up." and in my brain, that matters. It's a running chronicle of my life choices. It's helping me see light in things that I always avoided before like trying to better my mood or making healthier choices. Although the shiny people on Youtube have their own sets of problems, mine don't seem as daunting anymore. I can look at my little bible and smile, because my life is on track. And when I hop over the railings and stir up some trouble, I make a little note. "Do better next time." In my little book, there are no judgments, only observation. For someone slowly recovering from years of self-hatred that's a really good thing. Planners are just one way to hate yourself less, and they don't work for everyone. But I implore you, if you feel like nothing can help, that you're spinning out of control. Just buy one. It costs less than a bottle of booze and can give you more to look forward to than just a hangover. When I look back in my planner, I don't see a fuck up like I used to, I see progress. And that's all we can hope for as humans, to progress from our primitive selves to fully evolved versions. Some people decorate them, others just make lists. No matter what your style is, planners can increase productivity. They also make you look at yourself honestly. I've been tracking my progress in a serious and diligent way for the past two months, and I've never felt more in control. Although I'm not even close to accepting myself, my world has a bit more pastel in it. I'm closer to liking what I see, what I do and how I feel. My planner, my book of revelations has really helped with that. Because it's not just a stupid little book with decorations in it, it's a living chronicle. It's a letter to myself...with mistakes and victories all laid out in a grid. To me, it's beautiful. This little book doesn't change who I am, it doesn't detract from the danger and the fun I've always held close, it just organizes it. No matter how fun flailing in the darkness has been, it's a lot easier to stand tall, steady and sure that tomorrow if all else fails, I have my plan.

And when the clutter piles high and anxiety mounts it's definitely time to make a change. Here are 5 easy ways to de-clutter your life. 1. Assess the situation: Do you have a lot of stuff, or are you just holding on to a few things? The first step to figuring out what you need to do with your clutter is looking at how much you have. Check the surfaces of your tables, counter tops and shelves. If you notice more than 10 things you can do without, it's time to de-clutter. 2. Remove All Trash: The easiest way to de-clutter is to get rid of all the garbage in your room / house. Garbage is clutter. It can build up. Go around and pick up everything that's ready to hit the landfill. After your first go-round you should look closer and see if there is anything else that's trash worthy, like papers, old files or broken objects you've been holding on to. 3. Clear your surfaces: The easiest way to de-clutter and really see a difference is to clear off all your surfaces. Go through your tables, dresser tops and counter tops. Try and consolidate things into containers or just clear them off completely. After you've cleared everything you can choose a few items to hang on to as subtle, minimal decoration. This will make everything feel cleaner. 4. Invest in some containers: Whether they're for make-up, kitchen utensils or office supplies, containers are a great way to de-clutter. I use them on my desk at work, in my apartment and my backpack. You can go to cheap places like Five Below, Daiso, or any Dollar store incarnate to buy the things. You don't have to break the bank here. There are also lots of incredible DIY's to make your containers more fun with paint, ribbon and more. Adding containers and boxes can help de-clutter and make everything look a lot more put together. 5. Color-Coordinate: After you've thrown away your garbage, de-cluttered your surfaces and contained the remaining objects you'd like to keep you can transform your space with color coordination. It makes everything look less cluttered, more cohesive and a lot cleaner. If you want a seriously minimal look go with subdued colors like whites and sepia tones. For an ultra-girly look pastel is a great palette. Primary colors kept to one or two with a neutral anchor can do wonders for masculine spaces. It's pretty much all in what you like. But the clutter will look a lot less daunting if it's in a single palette.
