Writing a Cover Letter

Every time you submit a resume to an employer, you must have a cover letter with it unless the employer states you only have to submit a resume.  A cover letter gives you a chance to further explain your experience so you can really shine.  If you are not familiar with how to write a cover letter, please visit the link below that will take you to our cover letter tutorial and samples.
