This post is due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, February 17, 2008.

Visit this link - http://www.collegegrad.com/coverletters/.  Read the advice that is offered about writing cover letters.

Do you agree with all of the advice given here?  Are the points with which you disagree?

Which section of this tutorial is the most useful to you?

Is there anything of which you were not aware that you plan to use when you write your cover letter for your mock interview in this class?

Remember - mock interviews will take place during the week of February 25.  It's a good idea to begin drafting your cover letter soon, tailoring it to the job description to sent to me earlier in the semester.
