What is a Cover Letter?

A cover letter is the first document that a prospective employer/recruiter will see, even before your resume. This is an opportunity to showcase what you can bring to the organization. A cover letter should be:

  • Thoughtful

  • Personal

  • Relevant to the company

Your cover letter should emphasize what you have done in an interesting and enthusiastic way. Try to incorporate action words into your cover letter to highlight what you have done and what you can do.
