How to write a cover letter that works

In my role as recruiter at NodeOne (a company that grew organically to 70) I've looked at several hundred applications over the years. As someone who does this professionally you quickly develop a preference for how a résumé and cover letter should be structured and written. Both are important but for different reasons, and tend to focus on the wrong things and not place enough emphasis on the experiences or skills relevant for the position.

Welcome to my blog. My name is Jakob Persson and I'm an entrepreneur and consultant. I work with companies to create measurable change by focusing on users, customers, market strategy and pricing. I'm a deep and broad specialist-generalist with skills in business strategy, digital marketing, pricing, interaction and service design as well as project management and software development.

This is my personal blog where I write on topics that interest me such as design, value-based pricing, marketing and technology but also on personal interests.

I am the founder of Leancept which makes companies more competitive through value-based pricing and customer intimacy.
