Criminal Justice Cover Letter Guidelines

☛ Making the hiring manager confused in any manner is the last thing your cover letter can do; always begin your letter by mentioning the exact position you are seeking.

☛ Reading a story about your life is something the employer definitely does not want to read. Give them what they want to see in a cover letter. Do the hiring manger’s work for them!



☛ If you think your cover letter is fantastic and a typical closing paragraph would be sufficient, think again! A flat closing equals to no interview call. Close your level persuasively and ask explicitly for an interview call.
