Cover Letter

Cover Letter

A cover letter serves as the introduction to your resume. No resume should be sent without one. The cover letter is individualized for each position for which you are applying. It is an extension of your resume and reflects your knowledge of the employer’s needs. The purpose of the cover letter is to introduce yourself to an organization, demonstrate your interest in the company or a specific job opening, draw attention to your resume and motivate the reader to interview you. Often this letter is the first contact you have with a prospective employer. A neat, concise, well-written letter can entice an employer to read your resume with greater interest and will improve your chances of getting an interview.
