Creating a Cover Letter

In a nutshell, a cover letter gives an employer reasons why they should consider your resume. The cover letter should be addressed to the person hiring for the employer and make specific declarations as to why the employer should call you. You can make reference to specific skills or about your unique experience related to the opening and for a variety of other reasons.

You can easily create a cover letter that can be attached to your online resume when sending it to an employer. You can also create more than one cover letter, each modified for unique job postings.

Steps to create a cover letter:

  1. Log in
  2. Click "Manage Resumes"
  3. Click "Manage Cover Letters"
  4. Click "Add New Letter"
  5. Name the letter in the "Letter Title" field. This is for your use, the employer will not see the title.
  6. Type in the text of your cover letter an save it.

Now when you send a resume to an employer, you will be given the opportunity to attach a cover letter. Chose the appropriate cover letter from the drop down box and click send. The cover letter will be added to your contact manager so you can track your employer contacts.
