Writing a cover letter often seems like a particularly daunting task. However, it is an important piece to send with your resume.

A cover letter typically accompanies each resume you send out.  Your cover letter may make the difference between obtaining a job interview and having your resume ignored, so it makes good sense to devote the necessary time and effort to writing impactful & effective cover letters.

Your professional cover letter may make the difference between obtaining a job interview and having your resume ignored.

A cover letter should complement, not duplicate, your resume. Its purpose is to interpret the data-oriented, factual resume and add a personal touch. A cover letter is often your earliest written contact with a potential employer, creating a critical first impression.

There are three general types of cover letters:

  • The application letter which responds to a known job opening
  • The prospecting letter which inquires about possible positions
  • The networking letter which requests information and assistance in your job search

Your cover letter should be designed specifically for each purpose outlined above as well as for each position you seek.

Absolutely, do not design a form letter and send it to every potential employer.  Think about what you do with junk mail!

Effective cover letters explain the reasons for your interest in the specific organization and identify your most relevant skills or experiences (remember, relevance is determined by the employer’s self-interest). Your cover letter should express a high level of interest and knowledge about the position.
