    I like the idea of the red seal, it definately will make one stand out. I am concerned in that most CEO do not open their mail, their secretaries open up the mail and as such the resume is forwarded to HR and the CEO never sees the letter or reads first hand about the person. In an world of litigation; no one touches anything without HR’s input first.

    Awesome, awesome, awesome! We can always expect the “unexpected” from you Glenn! AND it always works! Thank you for sharing a unique and creative idea that made her “stand out from the crowd”!

    A wonderful and positive approach in today’s society! Thank you for sharing!

    You are spot on – I agree 100% with your approach. I coach my younger employees about communication styles with those more mature than them, as these individuals are the ones making hiring decisions, buying decisions, and other decisions for their companies. In today’s world a phone call even says a lot vs. the standard e-mail. I have passed your e-mail onto my team as another encouragement to them about their communication styles. Thank You for sharing.

    It would definitely get my attention, but to me the wax seal seems like a feminine touch. Do you recommend this for men as well?

  7. David Mullins Says:

    As luck would have it, I know Paul. It is so refreshing that you took the time to help his daughter Glenn. Once again, you prove that you truly care, and the benefit could not be bestowed on more deserving people than Paul and his family! This is a great story.

    Hi Glenn,
    Thank you for that!
    After my son Simon recovered from his injuries – he was hurt in a parachute accident after he returned from his second tour in Iraq, he went to UT Austin, Texas and graduated with a Masters Degree. That was last year. Since then ‘his job’ he told me is looking for work each day. He has sent in dozens of resumes over that time for almost any job. He was employed recently with HEB Supermarkets as a night stacker in Austin, Texas and they’re very impressed with him, even though he’s starting at the bottom, and tell him if he stays with them he will go ‘up the ladder’ quickly! He is however continuing to look for work more suited to his education and previous experience.
    So, I am forwarding this newsletter to him now. I have already told him that sending in resumes the current way doesn’t work as companies get simply hundreds and they end up in the trash. Hopefully he will take your advise!

    What kind of envelope was the whole thing sent in? Was the resume folded?

    Hi Glenn, My husband is in his fifties and looking for work in Industrial Maintenance. Also, his handwriting is not the best. Would you still recommend the letter be handwritten & the wax seal? I, too, see the CEO’s Administrative Assistant opening the mail. However, I believe it might draw attention. Even negative attention might be turned around by someone saying, “You won’t believe what this person did…” and the next person saying, “Really? What’s their name?”. I’m going to make sure my friend at the local Career Center sees this. Thanks for all you do! You’re a blessing to many!
