Cover Letter

Cover letters are recommended, and in some instances required, for job applications. If you want to stand out from other candidates, you will want to write a unique cover letter for each position you apply to. 

Cover letters allow you to clarify, detail, and expand on your most relevant skills and competencies. In addition, a cover letter allows you to showcase your written communication skills.

It is important that you have a compelling cover letter. To write an impactful cover letter, you need to answer the following questions before you begin composing it. Starting with these questions will help provide a clear and concise message for the person reading your cover letter.

  • Why are you interested in the position? Consider what makes the position, organization, or company interesting to you. 
  • What three skills or competencies do you possess that match the skills the employer is seeking in a candidate?
    • You can find these skills by viewing the job description. These specific skills are the reason every cover letter should be unique for each job for which you apply. 
  • The Cover Letters resource contains step-by step instructions for creating a cover letter including: formatting suggestions, tips regarding how to  highlight your best skills and qualification and how to tailor your letter for specific job you wish to apply to. 
  • For more in-depth guidance for writing a cover letter, please watch the  Creating a Compelling Cover Letter webinar. 

For your assignment:

  • First, identify a position on Indeed that interests you as a potential job opportunity. Using the job description, identify three skills or qualifications that match your background and type them out. 
  • Next, using the format suggestions from both the webinar and cover letter sample, create a three- to four-sentence paragraph that communicates the three matching skills and/or competencies you would like to highlight for the employer. The goal is to tailor the body of your cover letter to the position you seek
