Cover Letters for PR job applications

Students often ask me about how to write a cover letter, so I thought I’d compile some tips & info:

A word of advice for students:

  • don’t ask professors how to write a cover letter. There’s so much information out there, show me you can teach yourself. You’ll ask me later to write a recommendation letter, and all I’ll be able to think about is how you couldn’t figure out something as simple as how to write a cover letter…
  • it’s OK to make an appointment and ask a trusted professor to look over your letter.
  • do make an appointment with Career Services and ask them to critique your resume and cover letter. They’re much more tuned in to the market than professors.

For faculty: here’s a guide on how to write a letter of recommendation.
