How to Write a Cover Letter

3. Who Are You?

Use the first sentence or two to introduce yourself. Explain who you are, what you’re currently doing or what you just finished doing. This is your chance to let a little bit of your personality shine through and to let the employer know who you are. You could include some brief interests, extra-curriculars, and other small tidbits that shine a light on who you are. This is also your first chance to engage the reader and entice them to read further, so be yourself – only, a professional version of yourself.
