P.S. Use This Amazing Cover Letter Secret!
Here is a little secret ingredient you'll want to add to your cover letter to make it irresistible to hiring managers and personnel professionals. Like sugar or cinnamon to a cookie recipe, no cover letter will be as appetizing without this bit of spice.
And what is it?
The small but mighty P.S. (postscript).
Add a P.S. to the end of your job-search cover letter and it will yield amazing results.
Most people think a P.S. is an 'after thought'–something to add when you forgot to include it in the letter itself. Example: P.S. I forgot to mention I bought tickets for the concert. Or, P.S. Please return the ice skates I loaned you.
That is one way to use the P.S., but it's not the only way or even the most effective way. A P.S. on a cover letter attracts like a powerful magnet to metal shavings. Many people will skip the contents of the letter and read the P.S. first! Then they pop back to the top of the letter to find out what the writer has to say.
Maybe you've noticed that advertisers and marketers use the P.S. to encourage the reader to take advantage of a special offer and to take action now.
