Tips on Writing Cover Letters

From Herbert Lowe at Marquette University.

I have read enough cover letters from students to know that most struggle writing them. Not all of my students seek careers in newsrooms. But almost all of them will soon need to apply for an internship, scholarship or their first job after graduation. That’s why I spend time on cover letters in my Digital Journalism I class each semester. Besides, it’s a great way to see how well they have learned AP style and to check their grammar, spelling and punctuation.
