by Peter Fiske, Science's Next Wave. "I've always hated the term "cover letter." It implies
that the letter you send out to accompany your résumé, the opening shot in your job-hunt
campaign, is merely "decoration" for your résumé. A good cover letter does far more than
just cover: It engages the reader and makes her want to explore your job qualifications more

the most important parts of your work history, and demonstrates your flawless command of the
English language. That's a lot to cover in only three paragraphs!"
