Judging an application by its cover page: getting it right.

A good cover letter is the bridge that connects a resume to a job opening.  It signals you have strong writing and communications skills; that you understand the role you are applying for and know how your skills align.  

Submitting a cover letter even when you weren’t asked to communicate that you are an ambitious candidate willing to go above and beyond the minimal requirements.  

Visit with your career coach to get a sense of what differentiates a strong cover letter that speaks clearly to who you are, and see the resources below for a good snapshot and get your thinking ready to maximize that time.  Schedule an appointment with your coach here in Handshake.
