How does a cover letter help during job search?

A cover letter plays an important part in an effective job search. 

 

Your cover letter will support your candidacy while also providing an opportunity for the prospective employer to evaluate your attentiveness to detail, spelling, grammar and quality of written communication.

 

Your cover letter personalizes your résumé and highlight how your skills and experiences fulfill the employer's needs.

 

 A well written cover letter should engage the hiring manager, push them to read your résumé, and help secure an interview.
