What Goes Into A Cover Letter

What Goes Into A Cover Letter 1

A cover letter is an essential part of the job application package along with the resume. It should be a nice ‘doorway’ that should grab instant attention and invite an employer or recruiter to have a look at the ‘house’ beyond – that is, the resume. The cover letter gives you an opportunity to explain ‘WHY’ your list of achievements is relevant to the job and that YOU are the right person for the same.

Resume and Cover Letter – Suit and Tie

Resume and Cover Letter – Suit and Tie

A good cover letter should always accompany your resume. A well written resume is like a well stitched suit. It should contain all relevant information about your strengths, qualifications and experience, if any. A cover letter gives you an opportunity to say something about the organization and can enhance the effect of your resume, just like a good tie adds to the look of a suit.
