While there are a few different approaches to cover letters, I feel that there are some basic qualities that should be included. Noted below are my thoughts for your consideration.Feedback for RESUME: Post your UPDATED Resume Submission FeedbackHello,This is a good start. You have hit the main points, but there are some areas that can be improved. Noted below are my comments for your consideration.1. Education – You note UMUC as your first school, but the name was changed to University of Maryland Global Campus. Also, you have an anticipated date of graduation of December 2019. Did you finish? If so, then remove anticipated. If not, updated the anticipated date of graduation. Also, I would start with the school and the put the degree you worked towards below it. For Coppin and CCBC you should put down the dates you attended and the degree you may have worked towards for each. I understand what you are saying, but it will look better if you note a degree. Finally, format the dates to the righ-hand side of the paper so they are consistent with the dates of employment.2. Work Exp – Use use underlines a lot, and it can be confusing visually. Consider removing these and adding a little extra space in between the positions you held.3. Training – I would consider leaving the title of the training, but removing where the training took place. You can go into this type of detail in the interview. Doing this will help save space.CriteriaCriterionOrganization1. Formatting – First off, I suggest that you change to single spacing so this document can be crunched down to one page.2. Header – I suggest you bring your phone number down to the line with your email address. I also suggest you add the name and address of the organization you are applying to below your contact information, as you would with any letter.3. 1st para – The 1st sentence is on the right track but is oddly worded. I believe you are trying to say that you are writing them in interest towards becoming a Deputy within the US Marshals. Consider rewording. The second sentence can be reworded to only speak to the USAJobs positing. The gov issued advert part seems bulky and not needed. The third sentence sounds pessimistic. It sounds like you are no longer a deputy sheriff because o the sheriff’s resignation. If so, I would suggest not mentioning it. Mention your service, but I would avoid negative statements. I would also remove the final sentence as it is not adding anything of substance.4. 2nd para – The first sentence states that you “majored” in criminal justice at UMGC, but you will not finish until the end of the spring term. If that is the case you should use the present tense, not the past. The second sentence sounds odd. It is important to speak to your experience, but this sentence is too long and mentions information that you can talk about in the interview, not the cover letter. I would consider rewording to take out the information about the community, which you can bring up in the interview. You also mention “laid plans by the government”. What does that mean? Is someone planning things for you or are you speaking to plans that the government has to expand the Marshals service, and your application is in support of this? You also reference a project in the last sentence, but there is no mention of it earlier in the letter. What project are you looking to help or be a part of?5. Final Para – The first sentence starts well, but is poorly worded at the end. Consider “I look forward to displaying my expertise and further discussing the opportunity of being an asset for the US Marshals Service.” Remove “I will be available for drilling and questions” as it is oddly worded and not needed. On page 2, your contact information is at the top so I am assuming you meant this to be a part of the header. Assuming you reformatted the spacing, this will go away. The final sentence is to broad and not specific to the position you are applying to. Basically, it sounds like you are asking for any job in the fed government if this one doesn’t work out. If so, remove this line. Simply reiterate why you would be a good candidate for the position. Note UMUC Online Career Planning Management assignment folder
