Cover Letters

The Career Services Center provides services for faculty, staff, students, and alumni of WWU only.

A well written cover letter provides a chance to expand on skills and experience identified in your resume and to persuade the employer that you are the best candidate for the position. The best cover letters answer two important questions: 1) Why are you the best fit for the job? and 2) How will you add value to the organization? Most employers will not consider a resume submission without an accompanying cover letter. For tips and in-person feedback on your cover letter, schedule an appointment with a career counselor counselor.

WWU Career Services offers a template cover letter and sample cover letters as well as frequently asked questions when writing a successful cover letter to help you on your way to writing a cover letter that will stand out.
