Cover Letter and Resume Writing

Cover Letter

It is important to present yourself in a way that shows 

  • you are qualified for the job and/or
  • you have the skills and education to be proficient at the job.

A cover letter
•    is personalized for the position you are applying for;
•    shows that you have carefully read the job description; 
•    shows your interest in the position;
•    briefly outlines what skills or qualifications you have that match the job description; and
•    helps grab the reader’s attention and makes them interested in reading your CV.
