Cover letter tips

Cover letters and resumes must be done on good quality paper. Onion skin or photocopy paper is unacceptable. Wild colors are also unacceptable, and unprofessional at all levels of experience.

Spelling, punctuation, and grammatical correctness is essential! Errors distract the reader, and downgrade their opinion of you. If you are not careful with your own cover letter, then how careful are you of your work?

You need to put the salary range you seek in the cover letter. Some companies will request your “salary history”, but all they really want to know is how much money you are looking for. State your salary requirements as it is better to be eliminated up front than to go on a wasted interview.
