Explain why you are sending a resume.
Do not send a resume without a cover letter. Do not make the reader guess what you are asking for; be specific. Make sure that you mention what position that you are applying for if answering a classified ad. You never want the employer to have to guess what position you are interested in: If you know the specific position that you would like to apply for list that position in your cover letter. Otherwise, do you want a summer internship opportunity, or a permanent position; are you inquiring about future employment possibilities?
Tell specifically how you learned about the position or the organization
Did you hear about the position through a classified ad, a web site, a family friend who works at the organization? It is appropriate to mention the name of someone who suggested that you write.
Convince the reader to look at your resume
The cover letter will be seen first. Therefore, it must be very well written and specifically targeted to that employer and the position that you are wanting.
Call attention to elements of your background
Discuss your education, leadership, and work experiences that are relevant to the position you are seeking. Be as specific as possible, using examples. Try to cater your experience as it would relate to the position that you are interested in.
Reflect your attitude
Comment about your personality, motivation, enthusiasm and communication skills. Always advertise your soft skills. Make sure that the letter sounds positive and somewhat aggressive.
Provide or refer to any information specifically requested
A job advertisement may request that you state certain information such as your availability date or salary requirements. If they request this information, make sure to address it in your coverletter.
Following is a sample format for a typical cover letter:
Keep the same format as the top of your Tulsa resume
