When mailing out your resume to a prospective employer, you always want to include an original cover letter. The cover letter is a business letter and, at bare minimum, is used to transmit your resume (or other documents, such as transcripts) to a prospective employer (What is a Cover Letter).

More importantly, a cover letter is a job search and networking tool. It gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself to an employer, express your interest in a position, offer the employer insight into your personality through your writing style, and impress the employer with your communication skills.

Why should you write a cover letter?
The cover letter introduces you to the employer and indicates a professional attitude, the amount of preparation you have done and additional efforts you have made.

How can the cover letter distinguish you from other applicants?
Sending a letter tailored to a specific individual, shows you are familiar with the company and that you have carefully researched this specific area.

What should the format of the letter be?
Begin the letter with a heading including the employer's name and title, name of the organization, mailing address and the city, state and zip code. Several examples of cover letters can be found in the College of Communication Career Service Center in CMA 3.104.

First, state the purpose of your letter, the type of job you are applying for and how you heard about the company. Second, briefly say why you are interested in the position and in the company. Include what you can offer in the way of educational/work experience. Third, thank the employer for taking the time to look over your resume. Mention that you will be the one to get in touch with them to answer any questions about your resume and find out if the employer has any further questions. End by saying you hope to speak with them again in the near future.
