So if the letter you’re using isn’t working, try another approach. You can try a more unusual opening by adopting a bolder tone of voice or a more conservative one. You can also summarize your strengths more succinctly, or provide a bit more detail. The key is to try something different. Rewrite portions of your letter, and then send this new letter in response to new ads. If you don’t get the results you want, try changing something else. It may take a while, but don’t allow yourself to get discouraged.

Do be sure to use the same paper type and color for your resume, letter, and envelope. Your resume and letters should bear the same heading—one that includes your name, address, e-mail address and the telephone numbers at which you can be reached.
