Do I really need a Cover Letter? Won’t my Resume stand out on its own merit?

Cover Letters serve a different purpose than the Resumes they accompany. They can be used to build rapport. They can convey your personality in ways your just-the-facts Resume cannot. This contributes to the building of your personal brand, a concept big in the Resume business these days. Your Cover Letter can help explain why you are the best applicant for this particular position; why you are seeking a career change; and who referred you to this job opening in the first place.

Generally speaking, Cover Letters serve as introductions to the YOU that exists outside of your Resume, with its listings of job descriptions and accomplishments. It is conjectured that Cover Letters are ignored when Resumes are computer-selected. But, my guess is that although the Resume may be selected by a computer, it is indeed read next by an actual person. He or she will be seeking as much information about the applicant as possible, so they will certainly have interest in reading an attached Cover Letter at this point. Since Cover Letters are easy to custom-fit to various job postings, the consensus is that the advantage goes to those who include them. So, they are better included than not.

To get quality responses to your Resume and its accompanying documents, you need a crisp, strategically written, professionally designed Resume, Curriculum Vitae and Cover Letter. Your Resume, Curriculum Vitae and Cover Letter need to best represent your personal achievements and your own unique expertise.
