Bullets Can Make Your Cover Letter More Reader-Friendly


Bullet points can break up the text of your cover letter and draw the reader’s eye to your most compelling selling points. Be sure you don’t re-hash your resume’s bullet points. And unlike bullet points on a resume, those on a cover letter should either be in complete sentences (instead of clipped, “telegraphed” resume language) or should complete the sentence that leads into the bulleted list. See an example of a bulleted cover-letter section and a full cover letter with bullet points.
