Draft Your Cover Letter

A cover letter accompanies the resume and tells the employer which position you’re seeking, why you are interested in the organization/employer and exactly how you are qualified for that position. Do not simply repeat your resume. Your cover letter serves to draw out themes from your resume. Outline the strongest and most relevant skills and qualifications you have to contribute.

Check out the VCU Career Services Cover Letter Guide to get started.
