Most job or internship applications require a cover letter as well as a resume. A well-written cover letter introduces your resume and directs your reader’s attention to specific areas of your background.
It’s important to personalize your cover letters, and there is more to it than mentioning the organization’s name a few times or quoting the job description. Doing this well means thinking about your target audience and demonstrating the value you can add to your future employer.
