Many job seekers have reported that a strong cover letter P.S. landed them interviews. Morgan told me he had sent a
cover letter to the Human Resource Department for an electronics manufacturing firm.
The cover letter got forwarded to department managers and most weren't hooked by the P.S. But one of the managers read the
cover letter P.S., was experiencing the problem described, called Morgan and then hired him. Here's what he put in his
cover letter postscript:
|| Talking recently with Sam Reynolds, in your electronics production department,
he let me know that you are experiencing problems with your wave flow solder
machine. At ATL I managed the same system and was responsible for calibrating
it. By shutting the system down each evening for about 30 minutes and making
close tolerance adjustments I was able to cut daily rejection rates over 15%. I'd
be glad to share my experience with you.
If you include a cover letter P.S. be sure that you use it to convey something that is important to the employer.
In your cover letter P.S., you might mention your experience and success rate using a particular piece of equipment or a computer program that you know the employer uses.
In another cover letter P.S., you might include a detailed report (that's not confidential) or a newsletter that you've designed that is very impressive.
Or, in a different cover letter P.S., you could include an article that you've written that shows your expertise in the field you are seeking.
If you read an article about a company's product or services and you have relevant experience, use a
cover letter P.S. to mention it.
Don't use a cover letter P.S. to tell employers how wonderful their company is and how much you'd like to work for
them. They hear such comments all the time in cover letters and such comments normally have little impact.
