writing cover letters

Project Description:

write three cover letters for three different jobs.
your cover letters should meet the following
requirements:
one of the three can be in email format.
at least two of the three should follow conventional business letter format.
one of the conventional letters should be customized for the job you have chosen to interview in your mock interview.
you must customize each for a specific job
post.

in each of these letters, include the following:
your name and address
the name and address of the recipient
formal business letter format
content that showcases your skills and
mentions why they are a good fit for this
particular job.
a level of customization that shows your
understanding of how you must vary your
communication based on your audience.
the job posts for which the cover letter is
written.
an apa title page
include an apa title page as well as spell check
and proofread your work.

each letter should contain the following information:
your address, telephone number (personal--
not your business number), e-mail address,
and the date, in that order.
next, type the name, title, and address of the
person to whom the cover letter and résumé
should be sent. it is very important to get the
name--and usually easy to find. simply call
the company to find out to whom you should
address your letter.
skip a line, write "dear
ms./mr./mrs./dr./professor whatever," then
skip a line and start writing your letter.
the body of your letter should consist of two
to three paragraphs. the first paragraph
should tell the reader who you are and why you are writing. inform the reader of what
specific position you are seeking and why you
think the company needs your services.
write one or two more paragraphs that tell
why you want to work for the company and
what qualifications and experience you can
bring to that company. mention only a few of
your accomplishments and skills, since the
rest of your information is in your résumé.
the last paragraph of your letter should
request an interview, stating how you can be
reached. close by thanking your reader for
his or her time and consideration.
close the letter with "sincerely" or "yours
truly" followed by your signature with your
name typed underneath it.
be sure to proofread your letter thoroughly--
spelling errors are a sure sign of carelessness.
