Cover Letters

Cover letters are a means of introduction. They are meant to complement your resume and are required with each and every resume you send out.

Together, a well-crafted resume and cover letter present you effectively to an employer. A cover letter makes it clear you want the job. It not only summarizes your qualifications and targets them toward an employer's needs, it also takes your resume, a rather formal document, and personalizes it.

Download our Writing for Work Handbook for more information regarding resume and cover letter writing.
