M5A4: Mock Interview: Cover Letter (Final)

To make a great impression, a highly effective technique is to develop a cover letter that builds on your resume, highlights particular experiences, demonstrates the skills/competencies that the employer is looking for, and to start convincing the reviewer to provide you the opportunity for a telephone and/or in-person interview. Remember, the cover letter and resume are only the tools to get your foot in the door for the person-to-person interview. You want to make a great impression.
