A Cover Letter is a 1-page business document that needs to be sent together with your resume/CV when applying for a new job and serves to express your interest in the position. The Cover Letter you include in your job application needs to contain and explain details about your credentials and experience for this specific job/company and showcase your interest in the position.
The importance of a well-crafted cover letter cannot be emphasized enough. Cover letters allow you to tell a story about where you’ve been in the professional sphere, where you hope to go, and more specifically, why you’re applying for the job at hand. The best ones showcase a jobseeker’s personality, skills, and accomplishments, and breathe life and additional value into the accompanying resume (without being a repeat of what appears on the resume).
The majority of the recruiters and employers agree that a Cover Letter should be maximum one page, arguing that “the shorter, the better.” To increase your chances of getting your dream job, make sure to research the company and the person you are addressing the Cover Letter to and personalize it according to their needs and profile.
