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.cover letter




To ensure that your cover letter is in top condition, have it reviewed by one of our staff. Attend one of our Cover Letter Clinics or make an appointment by calling 217-581-2412 or stop by 1301 HSC.
