LEOLEO: Literacy Education Online

Cover Letter Style

The presentation of your cover letter is as important as the information. Because readers hope to get a sense of you as an individual, you should work to make your letter sound professional, confident, and concerned with the prospective employer's needs.

General Cover Letter Tips are also available.

More general information -- General Resume Tips -- offers an overview of resume writing, including explanations of the major areas on a resume, writing tips, and sample resumes.
