8 Cover Letter Writing Mistakes That Might Be Ruining Your Career

Guest post: Written by Gloria Kopp on June 12, 2017

While a lot of people pour time and effort into their CV, they neglect to apply the same levels of dedication to their cover letter. It can seem arduous to write a different letter for every single job you apply for, and many people instead write something generic, and that is not how you stand out from the crowd. In other instances, people simply don’t know what employers are looking for on cover letters, and miss out on important points. The following 8 mistakes should be avoided at all costs:

1. Appearing Immature
You may need to create a new e-mail address, as having some inappropriate ‘princesshellokittydoll.xx@hotmail.com’ contact details could make you seem like an inappropriate candidate for a professional company.

2. Not Making Sure Your Contact Details Are Up To Date
If you’ve changed your mobile number or address in the last few years, make sure it’s updated on your CV, as otherwise you could get the job, but never hear from the employer, and lose out someone else.

3. Causing Technical Difficulties
If you have used a program that’s not typical for your cover letter, and your potential employer can’t easily open it on their computer, chances are they’ll simply move on to someone whose application they can see. Don’t make yourself hard to find.

4. Not Proofreading or Editing Your Posts
Sending in a cover letter that’s been written in a rush and is full of errors and sloppy grammar is the easiest way to end up in the trash pile of a HR manager’s desk. The Ginger Software is great for making sure that you cover letter is flawless, and a HR manager can just focus on your amazing content. Try it if you want to make sure that you have a solid writing style, and access to a thesaurus and comprehensive grammar checker

5. Using Filler Content
No employer wants to have to sift through your cover letter to find good content; instead your great qualities should jump off the page and be crystal clear to any good employer. Don’t write nonsense just to make your content longer.

6. Not Backing Up Claims
Everything you assert about yourself in your cover letter should be backed up by facts that the HR managers can double check. You can’t claim to have a skill or talent without showing where you gained it, or giving an example of when you put this skill into action.

7. Not Adapting the Letter for Different Jobs
While you may be able to send the same CV or resume out for every job and still have some success, that is not the case for your cover letter. It may take you more time, but you do need to customize every cover letter you send to make sure you address the exact specifications of the job.

Finding a job in today’s market is tough – don’t make it tougher by making the above mistakes on your cover letter.

Per Se

Per Se

Written by Malki Ehrlich on April 24, 2017

What does “per se” mean?
Per se is a Latin expression regularly used in conversational English. It means “in itself”.

How is “per se” utilized as a part of a sentence in English?
When used, the sentence structure, usually resembles the example below:
“Your action might not break it, per se, but it could ruin it”

Examples in use:

  • I’m not a teacher, per se, but I do educate.
  • Chimpanzees aren’t the safest pet, per se, but mine hasn’t killed me yet.
  • The research demonstrates that vaccinating infants does not cause autism, per se, but may have other side effects.
  • Professional researchers agreed that co-sleeping with babies does not put them in danger, per se, however it isn’t altogether healthy.

The phrase is also typically used as a part of legal expressions; to describe an occasion in which there is an assumption of innocence. However, more often in English, the term per se is misused as a way to conclude a sentence, perhaps by those who are not aware of its origin and meaning, yet wish to sound well -spoken.

Per se may also refer to:

Per se (Latin), a Latin phrase meaning “by itself” or “in itself”.
Illegal per se, the legal usage in criminal and anti-trust law.
Negligence per se, legal use in tort law.
Per Se (restaurant), a New York City restaurant.
