An opportunity might arise where it is necessary to write a letter to an on-campus recruiter or job fair employer in order to secure an interview. Similar to a letter of application, the purpose of the letter is to highlight your qualifications and career interests to the employer.
- Explain your purpose is to request an interview with the organization.
- Consider the organization’s employment needs and demonstrate how your career goals and qualifications match their needs.
- Enclose a resume for the purpose of screening. This is appropriate considering that you are referring to a specific position.
- Close the letter firmly by requesting the future interview or meeting.
