Your Cover Letter Introduces You and Adds Value to Your Resume


“Cover letters accompany your resume when you can’t,” says Mary Jeanne Vincent in her newsletter. “They introduce you to your potential employer. Effective cover letters identify the position you are interested in by referencing the job title and the requisition number. They add value to your resume by highlighting your specific qualifications as they relate to the position for which you are applying.” “There is no such thing as a good generic cover letter! If it is generic, then it isn’t effective,” Vincent emphasizes.
