Cover Letters

The purpose of the cover letter is to introduce yourself to an organization, demonstrate your interest in the company or a particular vacancy, draw attention to your resume and motivate the reader to interview you. Often this letter is the first contact you have with a prospective employer. When you work with one of our Employment Specialist, they will create a compelling cover letter that will entice them to read your resume and call you for an interview.

The cover letter is an important part of your resume package, with today’s competitive job market. A cover letter will only help your candidacy for that all new position. When done correctly, a cover letter is a way to highlight your most relevant skills and qualifications for the job. It is a good way to show an employer what you want them to know about you, without the hiring manager has to figure it out themselves from your resume.  A well-written cover letter distinguishes your application.

A cover letter allows you (in a definitive form) to tell the employer exactly why hiring you, instead of the numerous other candidates, is a good decision. Additionally, it can make a good impression on a prospective employer and is an excellent way to show that employer why you are a strong candidate for the job.
