How To Write A Cover Letter For Resume
More importantly, a cover letter is a job search and networking tool. It gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself to an employer, express your interest in a position, offer the employer insight into your personality through your writing style, and impress the employer with your communication skills. Why should you write a cover letter? The cover letter introduces you to the employer and indicates a professional attitude, the amount of preparation you have done and additional efforts you have made. How can the cover letter distinguish you from other applicants? Sending a letter tailored to a specific individual, shows you are familiar with the company and that you have carefully researched this specific area. What should the format of the letter be? Begin the letter with a heading including the employer's name and title, name of the organization, mailing address and the city, state and zip code. Several examples of cover letters can be found in the College of Communication Career Service Center in CMA 3.104.
