Write a cover letter to accompany the resume in your application for the job ad.

Try to describe what you offer to them, using logos, ethos, and pathos to win them over, rather than just saying, “I did (whatever) before, and I want this job.”

The letter should be in block business letter format and include:

  • An introduction that states the job you are applying for and your general qualification.
  • Body text that highlights specific qualifications in more depth than the resume.
  • A conclusion that thanks the reader and closes with contact information.

In addition to attaching it here as a .pdf, .doc, or .docx file, your cover letter will also be included/embedded on your ePortfolio Welcome Page (where it must be a .pdf).
