Ideas for Sample Cover Letters

Cover letters. Just reading those two words can make you feel exhausted. I know that when I've been in intense periods of job hunting, I've changed my cover letter up quite a bit when I feel like it's not getting me good results. But how do you know what makes a good cover letter?

A great place to start is by looking at sample cover letters. The Sample Cover Letters website I've linked in this post is a helpful resource whether you're just sitting down to write your first-ever cover letter, or you're looking to improve upon the letter you've been using. There are lots of relevant tips on basics like how to format your letter, how to make your paragraphs flow smoothly, and how to emphasize your strengths and explain any issues such as gaps in employment.

Another cool thing about this particular website is that they have samples relevant to specific jobs including teaching, dental assisting, and medical assisting. And if you're an entrepreneur, here's one other interesting point: there is also a sample business plan cover letter that you can use if you're writing a cover letter to a potential investor, bank, or other business-related institution that might be helping you with funding for your business.

Did you know that a lot of job applicants don't even bother to include a cover letter when they apply for a job? You can set yourself apart from the crowd just by taking the time to compose a well-written letter. And with detailed samples to give you a solid starting point, there's really no excuse to not have a great cover letter as part of your job hunting portfolio.

Introducing Teasenz, Seller of Chinese Tea and Tea Ware

As a tea drinker myself, I've noticed that we as tea drinkers know what we like. We often develop very particular tastes when it comes to tea. Whether you are already a connoisseur of Chinese teas or if you want to try authentic Chinese tea for the first time, you will likely find something to capture your interest at www.teasenz.com.

Teasenz is a China-based company that ships tea all over the world, both as a retailer and wholesaler. What distinguishes their tea is that they only sell loose leaf tea (no tea bags), and they only sell pure tea (no blends). They guarantee that all of their teas are authentic and shipped direct from China. They also have a great shipping rate of $5 flat rate shipping to anywhere in the world for packages weighing less than 4.4 pounds.

Teasenz only sells Chinese tea, not teas from other countries. You can find lots of different varieties of Chinese teas such as black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, and herbal tea. The herbal teas include goji berry tea, rose flower tea, honeysuckle tea, and many other pure teas. The descriptions on the website explain the different health benefits of the herbal teas. Personally, I'm tempted to try some of the different green teas to see which I like best.

I was glad to hear about Teasenz, and they would also be a good site to check out for gift ideas for friends who like tea. Their tea ware collection includes infusers, strainers, tea pots, and much more.

Meet Jason Mainella of Teeny Drones

Jason Mainella is the co-founder of Teeny Drones, a company based in Montreal, Canada which builds nano drones that are so small that you can hold them in the palm of your hand. Learn more at www.teenydrones.com.

1. Why do you think that more and more people are interested in drones?

I think it's the combination of people's desire to fly, and advances in technology that have made remote-control aircraft more affordable and stable.

2. What inspired you to start your company?

We noticed that people are buying remote-control helicopters that were falling apart too quickly on consumers. You crash them once, they blow up, they fall to pieces, and people are disappointed. We wanted to sell something that is a bit higher in quality along with being fast and affordable--something that wouldn't break easily.

3. How would you describe your goal with Teeny Drones?

We would love to see mini drones in the hands of one million people. I enjoy introducing people to the fun and art of droning. Drones are a great nexus for combining the power of games and technology, and the power of having fun. We hope to bring as much fun to as many people as possible with our Teeny Drones.

4. Why did you choose the quadcopter as the drone to launch your company?

I love gadgets and the fun of taking things apart and putting them back together. Drones are so interesting to me for their technology, and especially the quadcopter. With the quadcopter, there are four motors going on, plus the gyro system to calibrate. I think everyone will enjoy giving it a try.

5. How do you see Teeny Drones expanding over the next couple years?

We plan to sell accessories for the quadcopter as well as other drones. Our idea is to expand from the starter drone to a medium drone and then to a larger drone. I also would love to create and sell a small drone integrated with a virtual reality headset.

Thanks, Jason!

Meet Daniel Wicharz, Senior Sales Executive

Daniel Wicharz is a Senior Sales Executive with Skrill. He began working with the European payment provider Skrill at the end of 2013, and he is responsible for sales operations in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. In the past, Daniel worked as Senior Sales Representative for payment provider PayPal where he gained experience in the e-payment industry. He has also worked for other well-known companies, including Google and Apple. Learn more about Daniel by clicking here and here.

1. How did you first become interested in working with online payment providers in your career? 2. What do you enjoy most about your current position with Skrill?

I enjoy the speed of transformation of the industry and the "hidden" overall value. Online payment providers like Skrill make payments happen online with extremely low fraud rates that nobody could ever imagine just one decade before. Even in high risk industries, we manage to decrease fraud to a level that even the cash industry cannot beat, especially when you take fake money into comparison. We make payments happen on a global level from the states to Europe, Australia, everywhere. Who could have foreseen one generation before, that it is as easy to pay someone on the other side of the planet as someone next door.

3. How do you see the world of online payments developing and changing over the next year or so?

It will change by far. I am sure we will see "online" payment penetrating also the physical stores. The trend to paying with your mobile phone or even your watch in a store will become mainstream.

Thanks, Daniel!
