NPT Jobs Recommends: 6/30/2011

I hope you enjoyed the blog post today.  Cover letters are so important, so I thought I would start today's NPT Jobs Recommends with an article about how to write them:

  • 'How to Write a Cover Letter'-This is a pretty great step by step guide of how to write a basic cover letter.  If you are new to the process, this is a good place to start.
  • 'Three Ways to Build Your Personal Brand'-Building yourself up is a big part of any job search.  This article from gives some great advice to get started on building your "personal brand."  Some of these can be a bit hard for people who have little job experience (especially the "speaking" section), but it's still worth a read.
  • 'Making Your Career Choice: What Comes After Plan "A"?'-I've written a lot about how our first choices in job searches often don't materialize.  Often times, we have to settle for plans A, B, or C.  The good folks over at have written a good article about this very subject.  They end the article with a great point: Above all else, have a plan!
