Professional Correspondence

A cover letter often is regarded as a writing sample so you need to write it well. Write clearly, concisely, and persuasively, use perfect grammar and punctuation, and keep to one page to avoid repetition. Always analyze the job description and identify employer needs; address those needs without totally restating your resume.
