The right (and wrong) way to show personality in your cover letter

Cover letters are a pretty status-quo requirement as part of a job application.

Unfortunately, it is easy to get lost in that status-quo shuffle of cover letters on a future employer's desk. 

In this article on The Muse for USA Today College, author, Sara McCord, gives some advice on how your cover letter can stand out the right way.

Wait, so there's a wrong way? Yes. 

McCord has readers ask themselves these questions when reviewing their cover letters: 

  1. Am I being rude?
  2. Am I sharing the right stuff?
  3. Am I still highlighting my skills? 

These questions are great starting points to make sure your cover letter is shaping up to be effective.
