Cover letters are recommended, and in many instances required, for job applications. If you want to stand out from other candidates, you will want to write a unique cover letter for each position you apply to. If you use a generic cover letter for each application, it will show and not address the specific needs of that employer.

Cover letters allow you to clarify, detail, and expand on your most relevant and important skills and competencies. A cover letter allows you to showcase your written communication skills as well.

It is important that you have a compelling and unique cover letter. To write an impactful cover letter, you need to answer the following questions before you begin composing it. Starting with these questions will help provide a clear and concise message for the person reading your cover letter.

  • What three skills or competencies do you possess that match the skills the employer is seeking in a candidate?
    • You can find these skills by viewing the job description. These specific skills are the reason every cover letter should be unique for each job for which you apply.

For this discussion, you will explore the components of a cover letter, reflect on your most relevant skills, and assess what action steps you can take to make your cover letter stronger.
