January 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #129: Cover Letter Format

Tip of the Week

Format your cover letter like any other business letter. Include the date, your name, address, email address and phone number. Also include the employer's name and address. Begin with a traditional business salutation.

A cover letter should be, minimally, three paragraphs: an introduction, the body, and a conclusion. Keep the paragraphs concise for easy skimming. Close the letter with a polite "sincerely" and your signature.
