Cover letters are formal and they should accompany your resume because they are used to introduce yourself to possible employers and try to convince them that you are a good candidate for a particular job. However, your cover letter shouldn’t just re-state your resume, so make sure that it offers additional information to highlight the skills relevant or necessary to the job you want to get. What are its important purposes?
- Giving a better overview of your suitability as a job applicant, including your working experiences (especially if they are relevant), strong sides, and skills.
- A better chance to stand out from other job seeker and being chosen for an interview with potential employers.
