Cover Letter Guidelines

When writing your cover letter, here are five tips to keep in mind.

  1. Be concise
    One page is all you should need.
  2. Proofread
    Ask a reliable source to review and edit your letter.
  3. Write multiple drafts
    This will help you fine-tune your letter; edit and revise as you go.
  4. Use bullet points
    Itemizing your skills or job experience makes things easier to read.
  5. Keep it simple
    There’s no need to use complex design; use basic fonts and formatting.
