From I (interview) to S (success) – cover letter

Una dintre provocarile aparute pentru mine in cadrul procesului de aplicare on-line a venit sub forma de cover-letter. Pe intenet se gasesc multe modele standard dar intocmirea variantei finale, inspirata din mai multe surse necesita timp.

Am decis sa va ajut cu varianta pe care o folosesc eu, pentru a economisi timp. Bineinteles ca plecand de la varianta publicata aici se va adapta si personaliza caci o fi el un cover-letter oarecum standard dar noi ca fiinte umane si mai ales ca navigtori suntem unici in felul nostru, cu calitati distincte ce trebuie evidentiate. Cover-letter-ul este important pentru ca, alaturi de CV si poza este un prim element prin care viitorul intervievator isi formeaza impresia despre noi.
