13.10 Writing a Unique, Personable Cover
Your Task. Using the job listing you found for Activity 13.7, write a cover message introducing your résumé. Decide whether it should be a letter or an e-mail. Review the chapter discussion of cover messages. Hiring managers want your true self to shine through. Avoid canned phrases. Instead, try to work out how you wish to come across in your message. If your instructor directs, you may get help from your peers in editing and polishing your cover message. Again, revise until it is perfect.
