Cover Letters

The dreaded cover letter…

The first time I was asked for a cover letter I had no idea of what to put into it, so I set off to the internet, as I usually do! With the help of a mentor and resources that I found online, I crafted a very good cover letter that my company commented on in the interview. The basic purpose of the cover letter is to add some dimension to your resume. It does a good job of pinpointing your most specific experience, elaborating on it and showing that you have passion for the field. Do not be overwhelmed by the request for a cover letter, in fact think of it as another opportunity for you to tell them why you are perfect for the position. Monster has great examples and this is the one I used as a resource. Good luck on the job hunt!
