How To Write A Compelling Cover Letter – And Why You Need One
Today, there’s a lot of debate as to whether it’s worth it to submit a cover letter with your resume. Some recruiters and hiring managers say they never read cover letters. Others say a candidate’s cover letter can mean the difference between being contacted for an interview and not.
So when you submit your resume sending a cover letter may or may not make a difference.
But in a competitive job market do you really want to take a chance?
Recruiters who say they never read cover letters say that a good resume should stand on its own. That a cover letter is redundant. However, a compelling cover letter can convince recruiters who do read them that you are a viable candidate.
