A cover letter is a key part of any job application, yet many jobseekers don’t include one. Even more than your resume, your cover letter connects you to the job you are applying for and is important for any job application to be successful. In the competitive job market it is no longer enough to just send a resume. If you do it is likely that your job application may end up getting tossed aside. While including a cover letter is important, it’s also vital to know how to write a cover letter that is going to stand out to potential employers.
