Cover Letter Checklist

Cover Letter Checklist :

STOP! Don’t submit your cover letter until you have completed the following.

Write an original targeted cover letter for each employer and position

State in the first sentence why you are writing

Show that your career goals are aligned with both the position and the organization

Make your points succinctly; every point should support your readiness to contribute

Proofread for typos and accuracy of contact information. Have another set of eyes review it too

Run Spell Check before sending your final copy, but remember that it does not catch everything

Follow up with the employer if you hear nothing after 2-3 weeks. Inquire if any further information is needed and reiterate your interest
