Smith Human Resources Manager Mom's Marmalades, Inc.123 Main Street New York, NY 10000Dear Mr.
Well, this trend isn’t limited to how we consume the news or social media status updates.
Gone are the days when we could wax poetic in paragraph after paragraph in our job seeking correspondence.
Odds are they’ve already read your resume — why would you make them waste their time reading the same thing over again?
Cover letters are your opportunity to not only show that you have the background and knowledge needed to do the job well, but that you’re also passionate, charismatic, and well-informed. With so much information to convey, where do you get started?
The first time I ever learned about the concept of a cover letter, I distinctly remember how it was explained to me: “It’s like your resume, but longer.” The reason that moment sticks out to me so much? Yes, your cover letter should include some of the key skills, traits, and experience highlighted in your resume.
But copying and pasting from there into your cover letter will most definitely turn recruiters off.
