Why Do You Need a Cover Letter?
The purpose of a cover letter is to introduce yourself in a memorable way during the application process. Your resume will outline your accolades but your cover letter is meant to deliver your personality.
An effective cover letter will summarize the Top 5 selling points highlighted in your resume. Impressing your reader in the first few seconds is key. Studies have shown, most hiring managers only remember a few things about a candidate.
Most often an interviewer will skim through your cover letter and resume; redundancy will help drive home what you want them to remember. For example constantly reminding your prospective employer that you:
- Consistently completed jobs under deadline
- Won a Customer Service Award
- And have excellent software skills.
Might help them forget that you:
- Have a high-pitched voice
- A poor golf swing
- Or that you were three minutes late to your interview.
Our Achievement-Oriented Resume and Cover Letter Will Help You Prepare for the Interview
Clients ask if a cover letter is even necessary because many HR managers claim they never read a Cover Letter. The Cover Letter is standard protocol, whether or not the interviewer reads it, they expect it to be included with the resume. I advise clients to cut and paste the cover letter we write for you right into the body of an email to a hiring manager. This leaves a great impression before even opening the attached resume. It will help separate you from almost every other candidate that would probably never think of anything like that.
While some HR managers may never read the cover letter, there are just as many that do. Even after reading a resume a good recruiter will often read the cover letter to get a better feel for your personality and communication skills. Even still, there are other HR managers who will never look at a resume if it’s missing this key element. Best to play it safe and include a cover letter.
Let Us Help You Get That Interview
Once I mailed out my first batch of resumes, the phone calls started almost immediately. I was actually beating out people who had so much more sales experience than me, and getting interviews, and not just from insurance companies. I think the matching cover letter that they did for me enhanced my image even further. It appears as if I will be making at least $20,000 more on my next job.
I was pleased with the quality, speed, and presentation of the final product. The new resume was 100% better than the one I first brought in.
