Writing a Cover Letter

A cover letter accompanies a proposal, resume, application letter and possibly other documents that are sent within a company or sent to a company/business and may be transmitted in various forms.


Begin by searching for a job on the internet for which you would apply if you were in the last semester of your degree and ready to begin your career.  Identify the company and the individual to whom you should address the cover letter.

Write a cover letter (application letter) to be sent in the mail.  This will be a Word document.

Proof read your document to remove spelling and grammatical errors before you upload the document to the drop box.

On a separate page at the end of the cover letter enter the URL of the job listing you used to write the cover letter .
