Cover Letters

Cover letters are just as important as resumes. Employers receive hundreds of resumes for a position, but a well-written cover letter makes it clear why you are the best person for the job.

To customize your cover letter with a career expert, make an appointment.

If you want to write a cover letter that gets you noticed, think about three things:

  • Employers read many cover letters, so avoid generic, or “vanilla,” letters.
  • Write a cover letter targeted to the job position, to show your potential employer that you’re a good fit.
  • Match your letter to the job description to show your potential employer that you have the exact qualifications he or she wants.
