Cover Letter Tips

Cover letters should complement a resume and entice the reader to pick up the phone to request an interview.  Don’t neglect this important part of your job search.  The cover letter should be written in an enthusiastic tone and explain why you are qualified for the position and how you can help the employer meet his/her needs. You can review the information in this section if you wish to develop your own cover letter.  These articles include cover letter help, tips and techniques, and types of cover letters.
