Cover Letter Writing and its Purpose

by Sofia -EAS- on July 8, 2010 · 0 comments

Writing a cover letter can be a challenging and time-consuming task, especially when you must customize it towards each organization/company. A cover letter is a necessary introduction letter that accompanies your resume whether you mail, email, or fax your application and/or resume. Its purpose is to introduce your application, express your personality and enthusiasm for the position. It also allows you to emphasize and expand on the relevant skills and qualifications that you possess for the particular position or company you are applying to. Employers usually spend about 30 seconds reviewing each resume; therefore, the first impression counts. A concise, well-written cover letter with the right information will convince them to read your resume and ultimately grant a job interview.
