Cover Letters

Cover Letters are another important part of impressing an employer and creating your personal brand. The best way to entice an employer to read your resume is to write a cover letter that highlights specific reasons why you would be a good fit for the position. Here are a few helpful hints to write a great cover letter:

  • Address the letter to a specific person by name and title
