Reader Should Be Able to Read Entire E-Mailed Cover Letter on One Screen

BUILD MY RESUME

The same rules that govern cover letters don’t apply to their e-mailed counterparts. With e-mail cover letters, the goal is to write so the reader can see the entire letter when he or she first opens the email, which means your message must be shorter than a printed letter. Give a brief (few sentences) introduction of yourself and why you’re writing. Follow with 3-5 relevant accomplishments or qualifications in bullet-point format.
