Consider that you found an online job posting for your dream job. Practice completing a résumé package that includes a cover letter, a résumé, and a professional strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis. This résumé package is designed to help you prepare for a future job search.
The cover letter must be at least a one-page (three-paragraph) memo that has been tailored to a specific job that interests you. Outline your cover letter using the following steps:
an opening paragraph that describes the position you are applying for,
a body paragraph that explains your skills and experience, and
a closing paragraph that requests an interview and provides your contact information.
