What do I name my cover letter?

by Anonymous

When it is time for me to email it and a spot says the name of your cover letter what do I put?

ANSWER: Without seeing the actual instructions, I can't be sure, but I'm guessing they're asking about a filename. So I'd go with the old K.I.S.S. principle (Keep It Short & Simple) and just make it something like Your Name-CoverLetter. So:
  • Don Jones Cover Letter

  • OR... Cover Letter-Don Jones
Make sense?
