Let’s imagine: you read a Media Sales Executive job description that you liked and for which you consider yourself “fit and proper”. What to do next?
First, read your CV all over again. Obviously, you know it by heart, it’s your life, but try to read it again while roleplaying, as if you were the recruiter that will get an impression out of that piece of paper (hopefully it’s just going to be just one piece of paper and not more…) within 6 seconds (set a timer on your smartphone, please). That’s the average time a recruiter has got to get an impression out of it.
How does your CV appear now?
Fine-tune it with those 6 seconds of absolute relevance in mind, then when you think it’s ready… you need to prepare your specific stock broker cover letter. And that can’t just be the same stock broker cover letter you keep sending together with any application you do. This is a big mistake.
Any media sales executive cover letter needs to be tailored to the job description and the company, on the requirements of the position and, particularly, the “ideal candidate”, which, obviously, needs to look exactly like you do!
Let’s try and consider an example of a typical Media Sales Executive cover Letter:
Mr. A. Employee
1, My House
Mrs A. Manager
