Cover Letters

An effective cover letter shows your understanding of what the employer is looking for while making a match between their position and your skills. The cover letter is your link to the employer and the position.  Before you begin writing, identify each of the skills and accomplishments that the employer has included in the job description. Be specific when connecting your skills and quantify your accomplishments.  If you are writing to inquire about a possible position, make sure to review the employer’s website to identify the key words they use to describe the organization or related opportunities.
