What is a Cover Letter?
A cover letter is an introduction, a sales pitch, and a proposal for further action all in one. It gives the reader a taste of what’s to come–not by simply summarizing the resume, but by highlighting the aspects of your background that will be most relevant to the position. A cover letter also demonstrates that you can organize your thoughts and express yourself clearly and appropriately; in other words, it reflects your communication skills and, to some extent, your personality.
