Getting The Job: Cover Letters, Interviews, and Job Offers

A job search is like climbing a mountain. With the summit in sight you must become more focused than ever, because the final steps are the trickiest—and, potentially, the most satisfying. This program guides viewers through that last push, from crafting a cover letter around a specific employer’s expectations to the range of responses a bona fide job offer might warrant. Viewers learn about the structure of an effective cover letter and encounter real-world examples of cover-letter strategies. Tips on preparing for an interview (from dressing properly to overcoming nervousness) are followed by a dramatization of how a typical interview might play out, as well as several challenging questions an applicant can expect—and ask. The video’s final portion covers guidelines for smart salary negotiations and other helpful criteria for accepting or declining an offer of employment. A Cambridge Educational Production. Part of the series Get Hired and Go: The Complete Guide To Getting a Job and Doing It Right. (27 minutes)

The Cover Letter
A cover letter always accompanies a resume in the job search process. A resume is a summary of education, work experience, and skills. A cover letter is an introduction of yourself in your own words to a potential employer.
