Write Your Cover Letter link

Not every job posting requires a formal cover letter, but these tips can also be useful when writing an email to a potential employer.

  • Use keywords from the job posting in your letter, but don't repeat information included in your resume.
  • Explain how your skills and personal qualities match the employer's needs.
  • Focus on what you can do for the employer and how you will contribute to the organization's goals.
