The purpose of a cover letter is to introduce you to a prospective employer and describe how your skills and abilities match the employer's needs. Before you write a cover letter, research the employer and the position or field. The more familiar you are with the organization and its work the better you can target your experience in the letter. Only you can write a letter which expresses your personality and experiences.
