Journal: Dream Job Cover Letter

Cover Letter for a Dream Job:

Write a cover letter as if you are applying for your dream job. Detail what makes the position attractive to you and why you feel you would make the best candidate for the job. Pretend that you have all of the education and skills that would be required for the position. Remember that your letter should be around 250 words.

If you are unsure what the requirements would be for your dream job, you may need to do some research. Go to the company website for specific information, explore job ads, look for general occupational descriptions on the ALIS website ( or talk to experts in the field, for example.
