Cover letter – How much importance have you been placing on your cover letter? Do you think that you have covered all of your skills in your resume? While using the same format and general information that you have used in your resume, you need to consider making the connection of your skills, experience, and your interests as well as relevance to the position you are applying for.
Be sure to mention up front, the position and organization you are applying for. Your cover letter should supplement your resume, not replace it, nor recreate it, but gives you the opportunity to show your accomplishments relative to the position you are applying for. In addition, it will give you the opportunity to show what a good fit you will be for that position and that you did your research on the company. Be sure to thank them in advance for their consideration of you for the position.
