Cover Letter

A good cover letter is a critical tool for use in pursuing career goals.

To create an effective cover letter, the Career Resource Center (CRC) offers workshops and an online cover letter writing guide, along with books and guides in our office library.

Cover Letter Critique Service - Drop off your cover letter and/or résumé in 308 Alfiero to receive written feedback or schedule an individual appointment with one of our career advisors to discuss the suggestions.

The CRC has developed an informational guide on cover letter preparation for your convenience. Our best advice: follow the format guidelines, but make the letter your own. Customize it for each and every position.

Once you read the guide above, use the appropriate cover letter template link below to guide the formatting of your letter:
