Employment opportunity

Identify an employment opportunity you are interested in. This might be a job you are currently considering or a job you hope to obtain in the future. You will create both a cover letter responding to your desired job opportunity and a reflection about the process you used to gather information about that job and the company.

Review the Cover Letter Guide attached belowLocate a job opportunity that interests you.

Research key information about your chosen job opportunity and the company (e.g., mission statement, hiring manager, past accomplishments, etc.). You may find this information by visiting the company’s website and searching social networking sites (e.g., LinkedIn®) or job boards.

Before you write your cover letter, consider these questions:

What duties might this position require?
What education or experience is expected of applicants?
What is the company’s reputation, goal, or mission? How would hiring you help the company achieve that goal or mission?
What salary might you expect? Is it comparable to the same position within other companies?
Is there a possibility to grow or advance within this organization?
