Cover Letter Mad Libs Logo

Are you ready to make writing cover letters easy?

You could spend hours writing a cover letter only to get the “no” email 15 minutes after you submit... OR you could have a simple system that works with the modern confusion around whether a job posting is real or not.

Does writing a cover letter make you tear up? Maybe even just the thought of it?

White woman with her head in her hands

Some people love writing cover letters, but not me. No, nope, not at all. I've written hundreds, and frequency has not made the heart grow fonder.

One day one of my clients who wanted to turn around an application quickly asked me if I had a cover letter template, something like Mad Libs.

Me > 🤯

The thought had never crossed my mind, but it was brilliant!

I reviewed the dozen or so cover letters I had last written and made a template and sent it off to that brilliant client, but also – now I had something to use myself! And I do now every time I write a cover letter.

What People Say

"Cristin helped transform my LinkedIn profile from weak and confusing to powerful with a few helpful suggestions."

Amanda Johnson

Amanda Johnson

"I was being educated on so much at the same time: the job-search market, interview prep, resume refining, project/assessment questions, LinkedIn, tips, advice, etc. Cristin is a wealth of knowledge and has such a great way of, what I call, “spiking the Kool-Aid” when it comes to explaining the world of job searching. Her ability to inspire and encourage you while still being honest and realistic is something I appreciated and admired so much."

Kyle Fowler

"Cristin is by far the most thorough, engaged, and encouraging career coach I’ve worked with. Her attention to detail and patience puts her on a completely different level. On top of that, she’s a wonderful human being and easy to get along with – essential when you’re looking for someone to take you to the next step! I cannot recommend her enough if you’re serious about moving forward in your career."

"Working with Cristin was an absolute joy! Don’t get me wrong, I had to put in the work, but Cristin made it our journey manageable. I came in with the expectation that she would help me, but the level of assistance she provided exceeded my expectations. She kept me on track. She helped me remember all the successes and accomplishments I had over the years."

You've got Q's? I got A's.


Don't read these pages myself – you're in good company! This is a course designed to give you a simple system and template for writing a cover letter.

Why isn't there a live component to this?

Not having a live component helps keep the cost down, and my goal is for as many people to get to take the course as possible!

How long will it take me to work through this content?

It really depends on you. You can get through the content in a weekend and implement in a week or vice versa. Or it might take longer if your time is not your own.

Everything is in small increments so you can pop in and out as you have time.

Is this program accessible?

Every piece of content is broken down into the smallest bit possible. Each section has a summary notes provided. There are videos with captions, speed control, and video quality control. There are transcripts.

I am always working to make my content more accessible so please feel free to email me at for your specific need.

Do you have any free cover letter resources?

I don't have anything right now, but I am working on it! You can keep up to date with my DIY offers here and my blog and podcast here. This is where those resources will be when they're ready.

What if I prefer more one-on-one support?

I love that! Come and start a strategy session with me here.

What's your refund policy?

Buying anything like this feels so risky. What if I am a charlatan?

Or maybe you aren't 100% confident that you personally are going to do the work.

Or maybe you do the work and you're just not vibing on my approach to the work.

All are possible, and that's why I give a no questions asked refund within 15 days of purchase. Just email me at and let me know you want a refund, and I'll process it within 48 hours. It can then take 7-10 business days to appear on your bank account (banks 🤷🏼 amirite?).

I always appreciate that you tested out my small business, even if it didn't work out.

Who are you? How did I get here?

Great questions! I'm Cristin Downs, an Executive Coach at Work & Worth.

I’m a possibilitarian. Also an executive coach, a theatrical thinker, a producer, and a lot of formers – too many to list! I help fed up folks and determined do-gooders pivot from jobs they despise into a life they love because we deserve better.
