Dear Mr./Ms./Dr.:

discussion of your skills and experiences. Include examples of when you have used one or two of your strongest
qualifications, explaining how those experiences relate to the needs of the employer. Be specific about why you
believe these qualities relate to the position and how you fit what they are looking for. Mention why you are
interested in this specific employer and this particular job.
Paragraph 3: The conclusion reinforces your earlier assertions that you are a strong candidate and that you are
truly interested in the job and the company. This is where you indicate how you intend to follow up. Refer to your
