Student Success Stories

Portrait of Doug Neveu, BS in Aeronautics, class of 2021
While at an interview Doug received the following feedback about his application: “Of all the many applications received for this position, yours was the only one that included a cover letter. Even if your resume was marginal, you would have received an interview on the strength of your cover letter. It was specific to the position and shows you really want the job.”
If you think a cover letter isn’t important, you should ask yourself if you think the job you are applying for is important enough for the extra effort.
