Always Include a Cover Letter


Should you include a cover letter when you send your resume via e-mail? Unless an employer specifically states no cover letters, you should always include a cover letter. You wouldn’t want to eliminate a key selling tool in your job-search portfolio. The whole point of a cover letter is to draw interest in you and motivate the employer to look over your resume. For some great tips on writing a dynamic cover letter, visit our cover letter resources page, which includes some great links, such as to a cover letter tutorial (for those who need a lot of help with writing cover letters) and a cover letter formula. Send your cover letter in the body of an email when applying electronically. (You can also attach your cover-letter document for good measure).
