Verify Cover-Letter Info about Employer and Position


TeenaRoseBook.jpg Verify all of the details you’ve included about the company and the position, especially if you have just tweaked a previously written cover letter. Did you spell the hiring manager’s name and title correctly? Do you have the correct name and spelling of the company throughout? Have you stated the name of the position accurately? Check everywhere — the address block, the greeting, the body of the letter and the envelope. Also check the facts you state about yourself against what’s included in your resume, to be sure there are no discrepancies.
