The Cover Letter

Thursday, June 10, 1:00 - 2:00 P.M. EDT

“I just don’t want to be another piece in their game, you know?” – The Hunger Games

Welcome to the job search Hunger Games! Job hunting is tough, but at least we’re not in a dystopian future where an oppressive military regime retains its vice grip on power by grooming children to fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses.

And yet…there are certain parallels!

Hunger Games fans know that Katniss Everdeen can shoot an arrow and hit a squirrel in the eye at 100 paces.

If you think Katniss’s bow hunting skills have nothing to teach us about job hunting, think again.

In this session, executive recruiter Peter Gray discusses the Katniss Everdeen approach to cover letters – and how to make yours four times as impactful with one-fourth the word count.

May the odds be ever in your favor!
