Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions

Is the cover letter important?

The importance of the cover letter varies from hiring contact to hiring contact. It never hurts, and it can be the first introduction to the level of professionalism you bring to the job. It can also be a first representation of your written communication skills and your ability to organize ideas. Treat it like any professional correspondence, with respect and attention to detail.
