Cover Letter for a Resume - Cover Letters for Resumes

Use a cover letter whenever you mail your resume. The cover letter introduces you and provides an opportunity for you to customize your message to the employer.

A good cover letter...

  • is addressed to a person (never "to whom it may concern")
  • is typed on fine quality paper and error free
  • is short (to hold interest)
  • emphasizes your value as a potential employee by stressing
  • your skills and accomplishments
  • asks for an interview
  • shows how you meet the requirements described
  • in the advertisement (when responding to an ad)
