I get a lot of questions every day. From people in all different life stages, job titles, and industries. You'd be surprised, however, how many of the questions are similar.

So today I thought we'd go through some of the most common questions that I get asked in my career coaching sessions. Hopefully this is helpful. If you have a question I didn't answer, feel free to email me and we can either set up a time to chat or I'll answer it in my next FAQ post!



Do I really need a cover letter?

Yes and no. My mantra is, "If the job is important, the cover letter is important." That means, if the job is your dream job, or at the very top of your list, you should write a cover letter. But not a boring one. Show your personality, tell a story, explain your value proposition - something to help the hiring manager understand who you are, what you care about and how you can contribute to their organization. This is especially important for career changers. If you're a career changer and you don't write a cover letter, you are missing out on an opportunity to explain why you are changing industries and give context to your resume. Not every job calls for a cover letter. But the important ones do.
