Janelle Razzino – Compelling Cover Letters

Increase your chances of grabbing the attention of the recruiter with a persuasive cover letter with tips from Janelle Razzino on Wednesday, February 4, from 9:30 am – 11 am at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library.

President of Razzino Associates, Inc., a boutique firm specializing in executive-level and mid-level placements in the Fortune Global 2000 marketplace, Ms. Razzino will help you answer three important questions:

  • What is so compelling about your cover letter?
  • Did you tell them how good you are?
  • Did the company you are applying to read your cover letter? 

Ms. Razzino has 28 years of experience in corporate recruiting and management experience, specializing in the accounting, finance and information technology disciplines across many different industries in the tri-state area.

She is a regular seminar speaker at outplacement services and professional and networking groups. She most recently started a new Network Group called The Hillsdale Network Career Resource Ministry in Hillsdale, New Jersey and she also now offers a six-week transition course to her candidates.

Ms. Razzino has been featured in Bob Herbert's New York Times column on "Workers Who Feel Discarded," and has appeared on the CBS World News segment "The Under-Employed." Most recently she has been a guest on the talk radio show "Your Career Is Calling," broadcast live on The Bronc, Sunday mornings from Rider University.
