Never Read Another Resume

by Scott Smith

What we do look at are cover letters. Cover letters say it all. They immediately tell you if someone wants this job or just any job. And cover letters make something else very clear: They tell you who can and who can’t write. Spell checkers can spell, but they can’t write. Wordsmiths rise to the top quickly. Another rule of thumb: When in doubt, always hire the better writer.
