Cover Letter Research

This was some research that I found useful when writing my cover letter. After looking at other people’s cover letters in the class, I think that I should probably do even more research.

The bullet points make it feel more rigid and less personal but I like the clarity of how she communicates her skills and why she would be good for the job.

Again and again I come across the importance of not writing a generic cover letter and the need to tailor it to where you are applying to.

I like how she starts by describing the strength of the company and then how she can match that strength with her own skills.
