Preparing Your Cover Letter

COVER LETTERS, like resumes, reflect the uniqueness of the candidate: what sets you apart from the crowd?  They donít repeat the resume, but elaborate on specific topics and shows a connection between what you are seeking and what you have to offer.  A cover letter should always accompany a resume, even if you fax the resume.  The only exception to this would be in the case of presenting a resume to an employee at a Career Fair.
