Career Tool Thursday: Cover Letters!

Ah, the elusive cover letter. I think everyone can agree that cover letters are the WORST. While you may have the formatting down pat, the hardest part is figuring out what to say. Not to mention, it’s always awkward talking about yourself and the added pressure that it could make or break your chances at getting an interview doesn’t make it any easier.

Luckily we are here to help take a bit of the pressure off and help you write a better cover letter! Our Cover Letter Guide* contains:

  • Formatting instructions
  • A breakdown of each paragraph and what you should address in it
  • General tips for success
  • And more! 

If you need more personalized assistance or you would like someone to review your cover letter, be sure to come by the office during drop in’s with a printed copy of your drafted cover letter! The schedule is below.
