The Perfect Match Letter

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

When responding to an advertised job opening, following-up after an interview, or pursuing an opportunity arising out of your networking activities, a particularly strong format for your cover letter is called a “Perfect Match Letter.”

All three of the situations mentioned above offer the chance to sell yourself by matching YOUR experience/strengths/contributions to THEIR problems/needs/challenges.

The “Perfect Match Letter” gets its name from the fact that your letter is divided into two columns with a line down the middle of the page, giving the body text an overall appearance of a two-column “matching exercise.” The left-side column heading should be “Your Requirements” and the right-side column heading should be “My Qualifications.” You will fill the left-side column with bullet points outlining the credentials and experience that the company is looking for. The right-side column will have its own list of bullet points, itemizing your matching qualifications for each of the job’s requirements.

What Clients Are Saying About Career Potential

I had the pleasure of finally putting a face to the elusive, legendary name of Ford Myers this week at a HireOne event. I got a lot of inspiration from Ford’s presentation on transferable skills. I like anyone who can infuse a natural sense of humor into their interaction with the audience. I would highly recommend Ford at your next event, but that is probably a given with his level of following!M.J. Wagner, Career Services Professional
