A strong Cover Letter can help you stand out from the crowd! It can demonstrate an in-depth picture of who you, your fit for the job, your interest in the company and passion for the field, and your ability to communicate in writing.

Additionally, strong professional writing involves more than just the cover letter. In this module, you will learn how to write Thank You Notes, LinkedIn Messages, Professional Emails, Messages to Recruiters, and Job Acceptance & Rejection Messages. We even include templates and samples!

Use the following resources to develop a strong Cover Letter and other written materials.
