Cover Letter Writing Service
Yes, you still need a cover letter; most people applying for jobs today neglect to include a cover letter which plays an essential role in the initial hiring process. In most cases, a resume will only be reviewed by a hiring manager after reading your cover letter. Your cover letter introduces your resume and gives it; purpose, clarity, and personality, and details why your qualifications warrant further review. A cover letter also lets the reader know how well you communicate in written form and articulate your thoughts.
Your cover letter should be a structured synopsis of your resume, highlighting specific aspects that qualify you for the position. You shouldn’t just copy portions of your resume and paste them onto the cover letter; it will be redundant and will not add any value to your resume. Your cover letter should also discuss your character, work ethic, and desire for the job opportunity. All aspects of your cover letter need to be presented in a professional, elegant, and sophisticated manner. A poorly written cover letter will prompt the reader to place your resume in the no pile.
Many people take the easy way out and don’t include a cover letter, or they write an 8 line generic or blanket cover letter. If you don’t invest time writing cover letters, you’re probably not going to get the interview or significantly decrease your odds. Each cover letter needs to be written to target each job you apply for specifically; this is why we continuously state that it is better to send out ten targeted and well-prepared cover letters and resumes than 500 blanket ones.
