Cover letters and resumes often go hand in hand when applying for a job so this post is dedicated to how they should be done.
- Cover letters should be concise (less than a full-page) and tailored to the particular company you are applying for. If the same cover letter can be used for various companies, it’s not specific enough.
- The cover letter should not summarize your resume-that’s what your resume is for. Instead, the cover letter should only briefly touch on highlights of the resume and leave the details to the resume itself.
