Review: Cover Letters That Knock 'em Dead

User Review  - Elizabeth Flowers - Goodreads

Another great guide for job search. My only complaint would be that there are not enough examples for young, inexperienced job seekers. This is most helpful for an individual who has worked for several years to draw upon their experiences. Read full review
