Job Portal: Cover Letter

This Job Portal was created during the COVID-19 Pandemic as a way for Library staff to offer help to the Austin community through a challenging and uncertain job market.

Creating a Cover Letter

Cover Letter Tips

Not every job posting requires a formal cover letter, but these tips can also be useful when writing an email to a potential employer.

  • Use keywords from the job posting in your letter.
  • Focus on the employer's need for a high-quality worker, rather than your need for a job.
  • Explain how your skills and personal qualities match the employer's needs.
  • Focus on what you can do for the employer and how you will contribute to the organization's goals
