Writing a Cover Letter

A cover letter allows a candidate to outline their specific qualifications, skills, and experience that make them an ideal fit for a job, internship, or other professional opportunity. We recommend that you tailor your cover letter by highlighting your most relevant skills and experiences in detail.

Sample cover letters (with corresponding job descriptions) can be viewed in theĀ Taubman College Career Guide, available through Google Drive using your U-M credentials.

Students can learn more about cover letter writing by attending the workshop series events hosted by the Career & Professional Development team. If you have questions about cover letter writing or would like to have your cover letter reviewed, please schedule an appointment with the Career & Professional Development team.
