Jimmy Sweeney is president of CareerJimmy.com and is the main guy behind the top selling career advice product called “Amazing Cover Letters.”
I thought it would be prudent to see how much background information I could locate on the man and his company before I plunked down any of my Hard Working Dollars. I didn’t find a lot of information –which isn’t necessarily bad.
A good thing is, I didn’t find a bunch of dirt, either.
I did find some insight into his strategy.
Jimmy Sweeney is a veteran of direct sales, copywriting and marketing. He has brought those direct marketing strategies to the job search. He believes you should market yourself as one would market a product. You are the product.
He has designed his cover letter strategies to get your resume placed into the top percentile of applicants; among those whom get called in for an interview.
