Cover Letters are an introduction to your resume and qualifications, a letter explaining your interest in the position and/or organization. You will need to send a cover letter any time you send your resume to an employer.
To plan a persuasive cover letter, it is best to research the specific position and organization so that you know what qualifications are required. You can learn more about an organization from exploring the internet, the library and the resource room in Center for Career Development. Carefully analyze the advertisement or job description and incorporate the skills they seek into your cover letter. Talk with employees within the organization or other professional in similar positions.
