Cover Letters

A cover letter is a great opportunity to send a personal message to a potential employer. It should complement your resume by providing detailed information with a personal touch. The objective of a cover letter is to explain how you will add value to the employer’s organization. This is often the first contact you have with an employer and it’s your chance to make a great first impression. Your cover letter also serves as your writing sample, so be sure to use proper grammar and present a polished product.
