Are you hearing this fake news that the cover letter is dead; nobody reads cover letters anymore or cover letters are a waste of time; well don’t believe it. We hear this so much based on naysayers who write negative blogs for fame and not for purpose. Not writing a cover letter is the quick and easy road to take, but in reality, when the right cover letter is used, it can be vital in landing more quality interviews.
Let’s review the results of my cover letter survey sent to more than 250 hiring managers top companies and recruitment firms where it proves the cover letter is still a powerful tool in landing interviews. We will look at a different view to writing a cover letter that better shows our clients are the best person-fit and let the resume support the skills, education, experience and results fit.
