Take it from someone (Karen Kelsky, aka, The Professor) who has read approx 2200 cover letters: YOUR COVER LETTER PROBABLY STINKS! Below, I have highlighted some some errors many students make straight from her amazing and seriously helpful site – The Professor Is In.
-Not on letter head
-Doesn’t follow business letter etiquette
-Contains way to much info on your dissertation
-You label yourself as a student (rather than colleague)
Relate to some of these common mistakes? For more reasons your cover letter probably stinks – and HOW to make it BETTER, check out the Professor’s blog article.
