Assignment 5 – Professional Cover Letter writing

Assignment #5 Video Walkthrough

Completing this assignment will help you name and identify the skills and abilities that will move your career forward.

Find a specific job opening posted online within the last 9 months. You will develop a Job Application Cover Letter (as though you were applying to that position) that highlights and emphasizes why you are the most suitable candidate for this position. For the purposes of this assignment, you can present yourself as a recent graduate if needed.

Complete the cover letter on page 1 of the submission and then include a link to the job posting on page 2 (a copy and paste of the link is acceptable and the link must work). To compose the letter, use the general writing guidelines on pp. 277-278 in the text for structural and content guidance. Note: An example can be found on p. 250, Figure 13.8.

The message should take the form of a business letter; however, you will submit your assignment to the online course shell.

The job letter / application message must adhere to the following requirements:

  1. Content
    1. Highlight relevant background and job history information specific to the opening.
    2. Emphasize significant qualifications and exclude nonessential ideas.
  2. Format

    2. Use an appropriate and professional greeting and closing.
  3. Style

    2. Paragraphs effectively developed and efficient. Note: Six (6) or seven (7) lines when possible.
  4. Mechanics
    1. Make sure there are no grammar or spelling errors.
    2. Eliminate wordiness and unclear sentence construction.

Your assignment must be typed, single-spaced within paragraphs and double spaced between the paragraphs, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  1. Plan, create, and evaluate professional documents.
  2. Write clearly, coherently, and persuasively using proper grammar, mechanics, and formatting appropriate to the situation.
  3. Deliver professional information to various audiences using appropriate tone, style, and format.
