Cover Letter
Cover letters provide a personal touch to your resume and can improve your overall chances.  A cover letter is your chance to explain to an employer why they should consider you for the position.  Your cover letter is a sales tool and should be tailored for the position you seek. 

Tips for writing a cover letter:

Items to include

  • Hiring person's full name, title, company name, and address.
  • Your full name, address, and contact information.
  • Use formal greeting (Mr., Ms, Dr.)

Content

  • Customize the letter for the department and position you seek.  Avoid form letters.
  • Focus your letter on how you can benefit the organization.
  • Ensure the letter is professional, not just "job seeking".
  • Address the job requirements stated and how your qualifications meet these requirements.

Items to NOT include

  • No long cover letters.  1 page cover letters max.  Brief, well written letters provide more than enough information.
  • Don't forget to check spelling and grammar.
  • Don't address the person by first name.
  • Don't use overused statements such as "I'm applying for the position on your web site".

Keep copies of everything and be sure to follow up 3-4 business days later.
