    HELP: what about addressing issues, like a 10-year gap of not working like raising a family or taking care of elderly family member, or you have been self-employed 20 years or an independent contractor your entire life, and you have all the skills mastered to the job through EXPERIENCE, but no education ?

    Cover letters are dead. 66% of recruiters don't bother with them. Very bad advice saying they are essential.

    How about the reason i write this cover IS BECAUSE I NEED A JOB, AND I DONT WANT TO HELP YOUR COMPANY I WANT TO HELP ME PAY MY FUCKING BILLS?

    I watch all of your videos Mr Martin and I can't tell you how much insight you have provided me. I take a look at my past CVs, cover letters and think "What the hell was i thinking? They're rubbish". Not anymore, although I do not have a job yet and have been unemployed for 4 years, I am using your techniques now to get my career in a customer service/administration role.

    I will continually refer to your videos when applying for jobs and hope I am employed soon. Thank you.

    Also, Thank you very much for taking the time to create and upload this series of videos – certainly eye opening, and your offer of an open line of communication via email is rather enticing – not to mention greatly appreciated. Much love!

    I wish i watched this prior to writing my cover letter for a vacant position last night….top notch stuff, some of which i hadn't even considered. I also watched the 'follow up' video…quick question, if it is an online only application (as so many are) is it still desirable to call the HR manager? They don't really give much away in terms of contact details..will an email suffice? Or would that be seen as a lazy cop out?
