Anatomy of a Cover Letter

KEEP IN MIND

 Cover letters should be no more than one page. Make sure you are keeping it as relevant as possible for specific industries/positions.

     Information on your cover letter should be up-to-date, accurate, and honestly represented.

       Career Services is here to help. Stop in for walk-ins to have your cover letter reviewed.

        Do not follow samples too closely. Strong cover letters are unique to the applicant and to the position.
