Therefore, these agencies often resort to screening the applications based on the cover letter. The cover letter may seem simply as an accessory or an unnecessary requirement for some but to those who do not have the luxury of time to scan all the applications, the cover letter serves as a very important tool.
A resume and cover letter are two of the most important tools in your life if you are actively seeking employment. They are the keys to finding a great job and making a good first impression. But far too often people underestimate the power that a good cover letter and curriculum vitae play in an employer’s decision to hire someone for the vacant position.
The main purpose of the cover letter is to get your reader (ie. potential employer) in the best mindset to review your resume. That’s it. Yet so few people accomplish that goal. Think of the cover letter as the wrapping paper, and the resume as the gift.
Another classic curriculum vitae blunder is forgetting to update your information. You want the employer to be able to contact you. An old address says that you did not check your resume before undertaking your resume distribution. Keep your curriculum vitae updated with personal information and employment information at all times.
