Letter writing used to be one of the compulsory activities in my childhood days. After every summer vacation, it was a mandatory task for me and my sister to write a letter to any friend mentioning how we spent our vacation. However, the funniest part was the friend was always XYZ, which means we had to write our letter to an unknown friend.

This was a story of every other child. Most of the kids undergo the task of letter writing practice in their childhood… Continue reading
Have you received a letter recently? In this world of cell phones, emails, and text messages, nobody seems to send letters anymore. But like reading a book is somehow more satisfying than reading a novel on an eReader, a real, honest-to-goodness “I can hold it in my hand” letter exudes warmth in the heart and communicates honest emotions.
If you say you really care, send a letter. They mean more. Consider this: in one hand you hold a genuine “from the heart” love letter … in your other hand you have a romantic card full of generic declarations of love. There is no contest in how both affect you!
What’s stopping you from writing? Are you worried about your writing… Continue reading

The saying ‘the first impression is the always the last one’ fits aptly here. Your cover letter has to be really good since it will have a lasting impression on your prospective employer or the hiring agent. The look of the cover letter is very important since the hiring agent would then base his decision on whether you need to be called for an interview or not. Unattractive and unappealing cover sheets go down the bin, forget glancing through your other details like skills and work experience. The reason for this step motherly treatment is obviously the bad presentation of your cover letter. The presentation has to be really good and it should make the reader do business with you.… Continue reading

Emails, more precisely automated emails, can be sent at a fraction of time, when employing the resources required for developing a sales letter are compared. The truth, however, is quite contrary.
