Cover Letter Resources

A cover letter’s purpose is to connect and motivate the reader with your interest for the position in which you are applying. Your letter should be concise and compliment your resume, not duplicate.  This is a good place to explain why you are a good fit, list a few soft skills, name connections or personal referrals to the company, etc.  Keep it simple and professional.  Cover letters are not as commonly used today as they have been in the past but employers still see the value, so be prepared.
