Why the Best Cover Letter is Customized

Charlie Keinath, Head of Tech Recruiting & Dan Geiger, Recruiter at BuzzFeed

Charlie and Dan, recruiters at BuzzFeed, can spot a cover letter template from the first sentence. And in their estimation, if an applicant really wants to work at BuzzFeed, they'll take the time to write a custom cover letter explaining why. 

In this class, Charlie and Dan explain why they read cover letters, and why they aren't looking for anything super long or formal.
