Do I Need a Cover Letter for My Résumé?

YES!

I was recently told by an employer that he had received hundreds of résumés, and could only remember one that had a cover letter. He still remembers that person today.

Think about it like this. When you first meet someone, the first thing you do is introduce yourself. You don't just walk up and toss out your life history without an introduction. Why would you do that with your résumé?

Your résumé and the cover letter serve as your personal introduction. Everything about the overall presentation, from appearance to the actual content will represent the first impression a potential employer will gather about you from the beginning. You know what they say - the first impression is a lasting impression and will be hard to overcome at a later date.

Take every opportunity to be noticed, and the first step is to develop a dynamic cover letter to accompany your Résumé!!
