Chapter 23. Value-Adding Letters > Tailored Communications

Tailored Communications

A value-adding letter recognizes that individual recipients have individualized concerns. It shows an understanding of a particular context, a special set of conditions, a major emphasis of work. It makes explicit links between what you have done and what you would like to do, describing especially relevant experiences in more detail than the resume alone can usually accommodate.

It is a valuable opportunity to bring out your enthusiasm for the work you seek, to show an understanding of an employer’s priorities and concerns, and to spotlight certain personal qualities and background elements that make you notably well-qualified to contribute.
