The cover letter must accompany every resume or application. The cover letter introduces you to your prospective employer and explains why you are submitting your resume. Your cover letter should indicate how your knowledge and skills are related to the position; how your values and enthusiasm match
the values and philosophy of the organization. Our cover letter helps as a writing sample that clarifies how your education and knowledge fit the position.
Before you start, do some research and ask yourself:
What organizational needs are being met by this role?
Why we all are interested in this role and organization?
What are the stated principles of the organization and do you share them?
What special feature, product, or latest news about the organization do you find most appealing?
How to Write a Cover Book
Opening phase - To start your cover letter think about:
Why are you interested in this field?
Why we all are interested in this organization and position?
What is the purpose of your letter (eg, applying for a full-time position or internship)?
How to get an opening and/or organization (e.g., personal transfers, or a handshake)?
The body of your book - In this (or two) section consider:
Review job description to get the qualifications an employer requires; find out what skills you have that match the job description
Include your personal characteristics that apply to the needs of the organization. My passion for equitable access to education has led me to research and write my thesis about cover letters and applications.
Show off your practical knowledge by telling a very short story - and the result - about the related accomplishments you have.
Closing Category - Make sure you are clear about:
How and where you can be contacted
To convey a positive attitude and appreciation for your consideration
When and how you will follow if you have to. Tracking is only appropriate if the employer asks you to do so or if you are submitting your resume when no specific job has been submitted. Keep reading and following any instructions you receive from the employer.
Important Tips for Writing Your Book
Carefully consider the qualifications and responsibilities in the job description; make sure you highlight academic, extracurricular, and/or internship/experience related positions; indicate how you can add value to an organization
Speak with enthusiasm, but keep your sentences short and to the point; use practical actions, not actions. For example, use "investigated", "collected", "tested" instead of "there was an obligation to investigate, collect, or evaluate" (see Restart Guide for auction listing)
Start the second paragraph with the main sentence; think about the main points you want to convey and then create a sentence that conveys those ideas
Change your writing - don't start every sentence with "I". Use "I" slightly.
There is no properÂ style or style of a cover letter; your book should reflect your identity and your writing skills
Verify your letter to make sure it is correct; sometimes one typing can cause your book (and your opportunity at work) to end up being filled with a lot of waste
Business Book Format,
For your book to be considered professional, it needs to be in a business format. Recommended block style formatting. This format requires you to adjust the entire line next to the left margins. The header you use in your resume is right in the title of your cover book.
See below for an example of what your business book format
should look like.
Save and Email Your Book
Save your cover book and restart as PDFs. File names must comprise your name for easy reference.
Also, enter your name and the position you are applying for in the email subject line.
Create a short email explaining to the employer that your cover letter and resume have been attached.
