About Cover Letters
What is a Cover Letter? A cover letter is a targeted letter that introduces you and your resume to a specific prospective employer. Cover letters are often required by employers as part of a job application along with a resume and sometimes, work samples. Even when not specifically requested by an employer, they are highly recommended. As the first communication between you and a prospective employer, a cover letter should convey professionalism and strong written communications ability while introducing yourself and explaining your credentials.
