Letting a prospective employer know that you have “something to offer” is not a simple thing to do.
But since this is exactly what you have to do if you want to get a Development Coordinator job, you have to be more proactive.
Adding your skills and accomplishments is extremely important to get an interview. Your skills can be made obvious from these four sources:
• Inference – through prior education and experience
• Assertion – claiming that you have the skills that the employer wants
• References – others claim that you have the skills that are needed to do a job
• Certification – your skills highlighted through testing and peer evaluation
Keeping all this in mind, let us now take ideas from the development coordinator cover letter sample below:
