Where are the letters?
The sample letters are in the center column [this column]
on the 1,001 letter pages. The name of each letter appears as a menu item [link]. Some pages have text in the center column, so you need to scroll below the text to see the letters. (This is a how-to page, so no letters appear below.)
I like to use the menu at the top of the right column to find letters. It's fast because it doesn't refresh the page. If you click a plus sign [+], the menu will expand to show additional categories. Click a minus sign [-], and the categories will collapse. The menu below the text in the center column works well, but will refresh the page, so it's slower.
Where is the search engine for letters?
The search feature is at the top-right of the page. Type your query into the white bar, and hit "Enter" or click the orange right-arrow key to search
Try searching on a company name (like IBM), a specific industry (like Cable TV), a functional area (like accounting), or any job title (like CFO). Try searching several different ways. You can search on concepts (like thank you or job hunting resources like recruiters). Even if you think you've found exactly what you want, give the search engine a try. You might discover something incredibly useful.
What are breadcrumbs?
This is a sample breadcrumb menu:
Home > Cover Letters > About Cover Letters > How to Use This Collection
Every page has one. The breadcrumbs let you know where you are, and you can click a link to return to a previous section.
What is the "Icon Key"
The "Icon Key" is a feature at the top left of the page that tells you if a document is an Advertisement, Memo, Form, E-mail, Handwritten Note, Letter, or Guest Letter. You can collapse this menu by clicking the gray up-arrow above it.
How to Print
Once you find a letter that meets your needs, simply click "Print View" at the left, below the letter title. Then print as you usually would from your browser. In IE that means "File," then "Print.
How to Edit
Copy and paste any letter into your word processor, then edit as needed.
How to E-mail
To send the sample letter to yourself or to a friend, click the "Email" link above the letter title. To e-mail an edited version, make changes in your word processor, then paste them into the body of an e-mail, or save your letter as a separate document and attach it to an e-mail.
How to Post a Comment
Any time you have new ideas, or want to critique or improve a letter, click the "Add A Comment" link.
How to Bookmark & Share
This link below the letter title allows you to access more than 35 bookmarking and sharing services, like Del.i.cious, Digg, StumbleUpon, FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter.
How to Change Font Size
Increase or decrease font size by clicking the A-, A+, Ao icons at the top of the page, below the search bar. Click an icon several times to continue increasing or decreasing font size.
Are You Lost?
The "Back to List" link above every letter will return you to the section you're browsing.
Have fun with the 1,001+ cover letters. I wish you great success and happiness in your career and in your personal life.
