Are you using this important and powerful job search document, or are you sending in your resume naked?
Many people wonder whether a cover letter also known as letter of intent or letter of interest is really necessary when applying to a position. The answer is resoundingly YES.
A first impression of someone is typically formed within 4-8 seconds. Even scarier is the concept that once a first impression is formed; it’s very unlikely to change. If the recruiting manager opens your application and discovers that you haven’t included a cover letter, it’s possible your application will end up in the “not to be interviewed pile” because of the message it sends, which is, that you couldn’t be bothered. And the same is true of an unorganized or poorly written cover letter.
A professionally written cover letter can make all the difference as to whether you receive an interview. A strong cover letter gives the reader a snapshot of your personality and professional strengths, and makes them want to move on and read your resume.
