Cover Letter, Resume, and LinkedIn

Bob Dixon is a businessman and looking for a job on LinkedIn. He ended up helping veterans find jobs by giving his professional critics on cover letters, resumes, and interview skills on LinkedIn. I agree with Bob Dixon that (a) cover letter is a marketing tool and needs to get recruiters’ attention and (b) resume is the key to get an interview and needs to emphasize a job seeker’s qualifications that fit in a particular position. Even though these two documents have two purposes, they all need to show off job candidates’ strengths and qualifications with quantifiable facts and specific accomplishments.

It is no doubt that Bob Dixon is providing great service on LinkedIn. He networks with other LinkedIn users and demonstrates his expertise by helping others, which is also an important social-media job-search tactic. I hope more headhunters will reach him after they see Bob Dixon’s featured interview on Fox News. He has my best wishes for finding his dream job.

Job search is beyond sending out cover letters and resumes these days. A “complete package” is the key. What are your opinions?
