I just added two new blogs to my blogroll: Weinberg on Writing, and Secrets of Consulting. You may be wondering why.Writing cover letters is a non-trivial matter, and too many candidates do a poor job. Learning to write better, especially for something as important as cover letters, is one of those Good Ideas.
A couple of weeks ago, when I participated in Jerry’s consulting skills workshop, we discussed making contact at length. That’s when I realized that the making contact skill and the networking skills we discuss and use as consultants are the same as people searching for candidates or jobs.
These two blogs are not directly applicable to hiring–but you will find useful tidbits on them that you can use as you search for a candidate or a job.
