Cover Letter Strategy

Employers do not always look at the cover letter. Many employers, however, recognize the value of the letter and will read it.

In order to communicate your message to them, the letter must be interesting enough to keep their interest.

You must also differentiate your cover letter from the many others recruiters will read.

The list we just formed must set into a context to make it interesting. This context is within the job or a project itself.

An example follows:

A sample cover letter paragraph follows. Note that it includes the prioritized knowledge and skills, as well as some others.

While working at Aerospace Systems I was deeply involved with the strategic planning process, particularly with systems and technology issues. Consulting with diverse vendors of technology services in the aerospace industry allowed for many opportunities to achieve significant results for the vendor as well as my own firm. In managing these vendors I coordinated the entire project, from initial negotiation through project completion.

Assignment: Now, using the Microsoft Word document you used earlier, construct your own paragraph.
