Cover Letters

 
 

Why Use a Cover Letter?

Cover letters are still a necessary part of the job application process. Hiring Managers, Recruiters, and other “gatekeepers” still expect to receive them, and you may be at a disadvantage if you apply without one.

The cover letter is a chance for you to highlight the most important details and draw attention to your experience and background in a way that a resume cannot. You control the narrative with a cover letter, and can tell a compelling story that the reader would miss otherwise. Resumes can only communicate so much, so why let others draw conclusions about you?

 

What’s the Goal of a Cover Letter?

  • Introduces you to a prospective employer

  • Highlights key points about your experience

  • Explains why you are a good fit for the position

  • Complements, but does not duplicate, your resume

  • Engages the reader by showing your enthusiasm and personality

An effective cover letter shows that you have analyzed the job description, know your audience, and know how your background and experience make you a great fit for the position.
