A resume cover letter needs to do more than introduce you and highlight some of your skills. It needs to be engaging, well crafted, and well researched. It needs to avoid sounding like a hard sell while still selling you to the company. If a resume is a list of your accomplishments, then its cover letter is where you get to tell the story of how you achieved those accomplishments. Use it to explain how your experiences will benefit the company. Tell the potential employer why this job is important to you.
If your resume does its job, you will be getting a call for a job interview. The key to a successful interview is preparation. That means learning all you can about the company and position, preparing answers for common interview questions and knowing your own career story inside and out. A job interview can be an intimidating experience for anyone – even more so for someone headed in for their first ever job interview. The best thing you can do to calm your nerves is be well prepared.
Resumes and cover letters go hand in hand. In fact, it is the job of a cover letter to get an employer interested enough in you as a candidate to take the time to look at your resume. Your cover letter should focus on just a few skills and accomplishments that are the most relevant to your target job. It should be succinct, include easy to scan bullet points to call out information and should always be customized to the specific job posting you are responding to.
