The length of time to find a job can vary considerably.

Many factors are at play. Some people secure a job days after first submitting their application for a position. Others, it may take weeks or months to secure employment. 

Factors such as:

– the economic climate; 

– availability of jobs;

– competition from other job seekers applying for the same role;

– the strength of your job application and;

– the employer’s preferences. 

But having your resume and cover letter written by a professional resume writer can and may significantly reduce the length of time in obtaining work, as both documents will be tailored and wordsmithed to market and promote your skills and experience.

Writing a cover letter for a career change


With a career change, you will need a cover letter to go with your revamped resume, as your resume may not have the relevant experience a hiring manager is looking for.

It’s essential to make the most of your cover letter as an opportunity to demonstrate why you are a good fit despite lacking the specific employment history that may be an important factor in being chosen for the job.

A persuasive, well-written cover letter will convince the employer that your work experience is a strength rather than a weakness. With your cover letter, be sure you’re clear on your goals for transitioning careers, and that you’re positioned for a successful career change.

Include the following three crucial points, to explain in your cover letter why you are qualified for the specific role. Emphasize on your transferrable abilities. Highlight your exceptional performance in previous positions. Express your passion for the company. The aim is to make sure you communicate these points throughout your letter.

How to stay motivated and positive despite set backs in securing work, by Matthew Coppola


It can sure get tough finding a job. We want the right job, but often is the case we settle for anything just to be employed.

I don’t see anything wrong with that. It can certainly look good on a resume as opposed to a lengthy unemployed history, and it also helps to keep us focused until the right job comes along.

We often say to ourselves – ‘stay positive’ or ‘don’t worry, something will come up’ – however the bills that need to be paid are at the back of our mind in how important it is to have a job.

But often is the case when we lose focus on our job search efforts, the result is:

  • Incomplete and inaccurate job applications.
  • Cover letters that are not properly tailored.
  • Messy applications and we rush the job search process.

Loss of focus can have a serious impact on the success of our job search efforts.
