  • I’d like to personalize my cover letter to the appropriate individual. How can I find out his or her name?

  • How do I upload a cover letter to my application?
    NYP only requires cover letters for certain positions. If a cover letter is required for the position you are applying to, you'll have the opportunity to copy and paste your cover letter during the application process. Should you desire to submit a cover letter to a position that does not require one, you can submit a cover letter by including it with your resume as one document during the application process.
