Do cover letters even matter?
And for the most part, we all know that while not every hiring manager reads them every time; there are absolutely instances where they make the difference. They’re the swing vote for the candidate who at first glance is light on experience, or whose transferable skills aren’t entirely obvious, or who may need to explain a certain situation.
They give the job seeker a chance to add their voice and perspective to their application–and giving them a platform to do this can help them qualify for that next-level role.
Of course, you have to set your clients up for success with their cover letter–and that’s why we include cover letters with most of our packages. Our cover letters:
- Match the style and design of the companion resume
- Are optimized based on the industry that your client is targeting
- Include guidance for explaining special circumstances
