I’ve both written and read through my lion’s share of other people’s cover letters and I can tell you that it’s always a painstaking process. There is so much you need to convey in such a small amount of text and the odds always feel like they’re a one-in-a-million shot in convincing someone that you are the person for the job. NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS!!
Thankfully, one astute observer realized that by simply following the brief introduction Luke Skywalker articulates to Jabba the Hutt in ‘Return of the Jedi’, you have the perfect framework for a clear & concise cover letter. That’s right, forget all your prior training, and instead trust in a younger Luke Skywalker for guidance.
Use the force. Sorry. It had to be said.
