Ready to submit your resume? You have one more thing to attach with it. Include a cover letter with each resume that you send to a prospective employer. Use the cover letter to highlight specific skills, experience or interests that match the description fo the job for which you are applying. The cover letter should be:
1) typed, printed, or neatly written on the same type of paper as your resume.
2) addressed to the the same person to whom you are sending your resume.
3) be short.
4) request a meeting to discuss the job opening.
Use the sample letters (see images) as a guide. Find out more about cover letters at: Department of Labor website: CareerOneStop.
