Preparing a cover letter is instrumental to your success when applying for jobs. They are professional documents that showcase your strengths, your credentials and your professionalism. When they are not prepared according to standard letter writing formats, employers will overlook your application. Employers expect strong applicants to know how to structure a proper cover letter. Thus, from the employers’ perspective, the cover letter is the first step in their elimination process. To ensure your success, Student Employment Services has prepared a Cover-Letter-Handbook (pdf) to get you started.
Students and Alumni are always welcome to drop by Student Employment Services in BIRCH 270 and have an advisor review your cover letter and resume.
