DON’T FORGET THE COVER LETTER!
- A cover letter shows you are a person, not just a collection of experiences.
- A cover letter draws attention to points of interest in your resume.
- A cover letter allows you to add the social touch to your resume: “Thank you for speaking with me yesterday.”
- A cover letter makes your request for an interview.
- A cover letter demonstrates that you took the time to find out who to contact. It shows that you see a potential employer as a person. “To whom it may concern” letters are fine for standing letters of reference. They rarely work when you want to get called for an interview.
- A cover letter reveals whether you understand what the employer is looking for.
Applying for a job with a generic cover letter is even worse than applying for one with a generic resume. It just doesn’t work!
Many employers scan the cover letter, or cover email, to decide if it’s worth looking at the resume.
Remember your cover letter.
