    Perfect timing!

    Released with impeccable timing given the current economic environment, Cover Letters for Dummies helps level the playing field for multiple generations of job seekers. As I read, it became unequivocally evident that protocol has changed drastically over the decades. If those of us near retirement age and perhaps jobless are to compete effectively for limited positions, it would behoove us to listen carefully to the 50 plus professionals who have shared letters and online messages. A very important guide for one and all!
