Correspondence for Job Seekers

Correspondence for Job Seekers

Job Coach, Randy Wooden, joined Tami and Tracy this morning to discuss the importance of quality cover letters and thank you notes when searching for work.

According to Randy, a cover letter along with your resume is a great way to customize your information to the specific job you are interested in. To make yours stand out, consider using columns in the middle paragraph illustrating the requirements for the job as laid out in the ad and your qualifications which satisfy those requirements.

Thank you notes as a follow up to an interview are also essential. Randy suggests emailing a thank you message the day of the interview and also sending a handwritten thank you note.

For more information or to seek advice for your career search, you can reach Randy at the Goodwill Professional Center in Winston-Salem. Contact him at rwooden@goodwillnwnc.org or (336) 776-6829.

About Tami With-an-i

Co-Host, Your Family-Friendly Morning Show

I have three awesome kids - Andrew, Carley and Laura. My husband, Alton, is a delivery driver by day with dreams of one day publishing his own comic book. Yes, he is a geek, but I love him anyway.

I have been working at WBFJ since September 2004 when God threw me out of the boat I was riding in and set me on a new and wonderful course. I love co-hosting the morning show, although the lack of sleep does make me a bit loopy at times.
