Cover Letters

If a resume is a portrait of your professional self, the cover letter is a little magnifying glass that allows the reader a closer look. Your cover letter helps the reader focus on those qualities or experiences that show how you are “a fit” for a specific job and/or agency. While writing your cover letter, keep in mind that the language you use as you speak to the reader communicates as much or more to your reader as your letter’s content. Leave your reader anxious to meet you.
