When you are applying for an entry level position, composing a cover letter can be a challenge because you may not have a lot of work experience. However, it's fine to highlight your non-employment related experience in your cover letter if it's relevant to the job.

Volunteer experiences, internships, related classes, projects, leadership experience, extracurricular activities, and your skills that pertain to the position you're applying for all can be mentioned in your cover letter.

Mentioning that related experience is a good way to differentiate your application from the crowd, especially considering it's basically a level playing field when it comes to applying for entry level jobs.

Review sample cover letters for entry level candidates for employment to get ideas for your own cover letters.
