If you send a resume, you must send a cover letter along with it.
A cover letter is either a formal letter or an email that is sent to an employer to introduce and highlight your resume. Use your cover letter to bring your resume to life and tell the employer why you are best candidate for the job.

To ensure that your cover letter is in top condition, have it reviewed by one of our staff. For alumni, our Career Center offers cover letter writing assistance via e-mail or phone appointments. Phone appointments can be arranged by calling 217-581-2412.
