Get Noticed

Gone are the days of the standardized printed cover letter attached to the resume. With the onset of internet job boards and social media applications, how do you utilize your letter of introduction to engage the hiring authority? Here are some tips:

1) Do have an eye-catching subject line by headlining your #1 career achievement but be sure it correlates to the job specifics.

2) The cover is an introduction to your qualifications but not a regurgitation of your resume. Sell your abilities and merits.

3) Thoroughly understand the job and company and speak to those points. Understand the void they are looking to fill and bullet point your track record as their solution.

4) Keep it short. Recruiters and Hiring Authorities are receiving hundreds of resumes so the cover needs to be read at a glance while prompting them to click the resume to read more.

5) Proof it. Spelling errors and poor grammer will immediately get you dismissed. Attention to detail is the first thing that is qualified.

Expeditious Experience

Friday, February 2, 2024  by Bailey

Congratulations to Ed Bradstreet and Bo Bradstreet on the quick work on a recent project! B&B was approached by a decades-long client to secure a Financial Analyst for their expanding team. Our client, who has hired over 60 talented individuals through Bohan & Bradstreet over the years, is a global manufacturer with record revenues and profits, Within 3 weeks of the initial call, Bo & Ed placed TWO candidates in the roles of Financial Analyst because the client decided both finalists were a perfect fit for the company. They are starting in first quarter and the roles are expansionary with multiple upside options at SBU, group, and corporate level. With this career move, both candidates will be able to expand their skills, partner with leadership at global profit and cost centers, and be involved with business operations, acquisitions, hedging, leases, revenue recognition, financial reporting, forecasting, and analysis. This is a win across the board and we wish them much success in their new roles!
