Effective Cover Letters

Cover letters set the stage for bringing attention to your resume as significant and worth a careful review. Because cover letters provide the first impression, that impression may determine whether you'll be considered for the position or not. Also, since cover letters are quickly scanned, often under a minute, your primary points must not get lost under excessive verbiage. The more critical written communication is in fulfillment of the position's duties, the more important a cover letter becomes.
