- Write about every experience listed on the poster.
- Explain how your skills match what the heading is asking for. Use real examples and provide details.
- Specify how long ago you did the work and the number or years that you did it.
- If the poster uses the words “significant” or “recent,” make sure you read how long they are asking for and how far back you can provide examples from.

- It is a good idea to have someone read over your cover letter and resume before you send it.
