Sample Letters

The Career Guide (pdf), which is also available in 201 Ives Hall as a hard copy, has excellent examples of the various types of job-search correspondence that you may need to write. Additional samples are also available on the Cornell Career Services web site. Don't worry that they are not all specifically for ILR-related situations, because the basics of job-search correspondence are pretty much uniform across career fields.
