DO YOU REALLY NEED A COVER LETTER?
Why you Need a cover letter
Professional cover letters are important. Often our clients ask, if a cover letter is important? Or, if recruiters will even read them? We hear these questions all the time. The answers is a big yes! As professional resume writers and career experts we always advise candidates have a professional and tailored cover letter to go with their resume. There is so much competition for jobs now that even resumes which make it past ATS systems, are expected to have cover letters. Cover letters will demonstrate your uniqueness and help tell recruiters why you would be a good fit for the job!
Look at the Difference cover letters make
The truth is, studies show that 40% of employers won’t look at resumes if they don’t have a cover letter. Cover letters are seen by 75% of recruiters as being as important as the resume itself. Unfortunately, applicants spend either none or a little time on them which stops them from getting hired. If a posting requests a cover letter and you don’t provide one or provide one that is poorly written you will not be contacted. Cover letters are important and our professional career advice is, always have one!
give yourself the best chance to get the job
When an employer has thousands of resumes to sort through, cover letters set the tone of an application, and should motivate the employer to show interest and be very keen to read the enclosed resume. Don’t miss out on the next great job opportunity. Our professionally written cover letters will demonstrate your interest in a position, your professional brand, and exactly why a prospective employer should consider you over the next candidate. So think carefully before you submit your application. Does it have a cover letter that really sells you and helps you stand out from the rest!
