I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation to help me study.
Need to finish both part A and part B. Cover letter
Cover Letter (word count at least 450-600):
Write a cover letter to the company of your target job/internship focusing on the two competencies/skills you currently possess from the job posting. Focus more on transferable skills (e.g. teamwork, communication, critical thinking, etc.) than on hard quantitative skills. The NACE Competencies are a good guide.
Follow the “Sticky Stories” Cover Letter format in Handshake.

Development plan( word count at least 450-600):
For the two competencies you currently do not possess, but need to have for your target career, write a short development plan to get you there before you graduate. Remember the process used for your SLPI and Team Improvement plans. You may use only one quantitative skill for one of your development plans (e.g. SQL or Python, Advanced Excel, Google Analytics, etc.)
Using the same job or internship posting you’re using for your cover letter, record yourself in VMock answering the question, “Why should we hire you?” See the Final Exam Page/Elevator Pitch and Career Services Videos for guidance on how to craft your elevator pitch. Hint: you can use the same selling points you used in your cover letter. Based on the feedback provided from VMock, on what areas do you need refinement and how will you do that?
