NPT Jobs Recommends: 7/6/2011

Have a nonprofit job search success story you want to share?  Feel free to send me an e-mail at and I'll consider posting it.  I'm really looking forward to hearing some of your stories!  Anyway, here are today's recommendations...

  • 'Dressing For Summer in the Office Can Be Tough'-You always want to look your best for a job interview, but at what price?  Now that it's the summer, it might be a bit uncomfortable to wear some of the standard interview clothes.  ResumeBear gives some tips on how you can look good and be comfortable.
  • 'How to Make Your Cover Letter a Perfect Fit For Any Opening'-The opening of a cover letter can be the hardest part.  Here are some tips on how to write a great one that will be appropriate for whatever job you apply to.  I'd still recommend some minor customization in each opening, but having a standard opening isn't the worst thing in the world.
  • 'Required: Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone'-In order to best market ourselves, we need to take risks.  Sticking with a comfortable routine might be nice, but the best results are often seen when we try something new.
