  • The purpose of the cover letter is to demonstrate to the employer that you are a good fit for their organization and the role for which you’re applying. Think about your cover letter as a way to “connect the dots” between your resume (your past) and the job description (the future).
  • Share the reasons for your interest, enthusiasm, and qualifications for the job, beyond what is communicated in your resume.
  • Help the employer understand your motivation and provide an introduction to your personality and values.
