How to Write a Cover Letter A cover letter is a short introduction letter that accompanies your resume and serves as a formal introduction of you to potential employers. It will inform the employer of your valuable skills and personal attributes that relate to the job. The cover letter should persuade the employer to read your resume. It is especially important that a cover letter be included with every resume you send to an employer.

employer and each position, you should do your homework to discover what is unique and special about the organization. Remember that your letter needs to express interest and enthusiasm for why you want to work for the firm.
Convey genuine interest in the company and the position. Use highly descriptive and persuasive sentences to induce a positive response from your reader. Focus on the employer's needs, and highlight 2-3 skills that specifically fit the position. Generally, these letters should not be more than 3 to 4 paragraphs in length. Cover letters take time; give them the same attention as your resume. NEVER address your letter to "Dear Sir or Madam", "To Whom It May Concern", etc. This is the same as the junk mail you receive that's labeled "Resident", or "Occupant". Preferably, it should be addressed to the hiring authority, or, at the very least, the HR manager. Be sure to include the person's correct title and business address. Avoid overusing the "I" word. Remember, this is about the employer's needs, not yours. Be concise. Omit detailed descriptions of unrelated jobs and do not rehash content from your resume. Be polite and professional. Thank the employer/hiring manager for their time and consideration.
