By Carolyn Covey Morris, Founder and President, QMobius, Inc. A few years ago, I went to a breakfast to hear a motivational speaker and former CMO of a top global brand.

DO have someone read your resume and cover letter before you send it out. Seriously, give it to a teacher, a parent, a friend with better writing skills than you have. When I get a badly written resume and/or cover letter, I get so distracted by the mistakes that I don’t pay as much attention to the content.

DO have writing samples available if you’re applying for a position that will require writing. When you send them along, think about the subject matter and relevance.
