Cover Letter Writing
A cover letter is an essential part of your correspondence with an employer in your process of searching for a job or an internship.
Always introduce your résumé to a potential employer by sending a cover letter despite the mode of distribution. While the résumé provides an overview of your background, the cover letter gives you the opportunity to highlight those aspects of your background that are most relevant to the position you are seeking.
A good cover letter would encourage the employer to learn more about you by reading your résumé and meeting with you for an interview. It would also present the employer with a sample of your writing skills.
