Student: Resumes and Cover Letters

Cover Letter Builder

A resume's best friend is a Cover Letter. In writing a cover letter, you have a chance to connect with the recipient (employer) and let them know why you're a great fit for the opportunity. You can create multiple Cover Letters within MajorClarity so that each Cover Letter can be catered to the specific opportunity you're seeking.
At the bottom of the Resume Builder page, click New Cover Letter. a6c24b8857-0593162b299aae6f2597.png

  • The first section of your cover letter is your contact information. Include your preferred contact information where the employer can reach you.
    • Name
    • Email
    • Phone Number
  • Next, include the name of the company and the individual you are addressing the letter to, such as the recruiter or hiring manager.

    • Introduction - introduce yourself and your background
    • Reason for applying - express your interest in what the company does, and why you want to work for the company.
