If you are looking for a new job, you know the usual protocol. Build a resume, write a cover letter, send to the employer.
As far as your resume is concerned, you know what to do. And you know why you need it, which helps a lot.
When it comes to cover letters, things tend to get a bit trickier. Not only are you often unsure why you need it in the first place, but you also know there’s no one way to write it.
Old buddy Google doesn’t always help with writing an effective cover letter. The worst part is constantly stumbling upon someone who’s saying cover letters are dead.
Yet, you still see employers requesting them.
With a heavy heart, you start writing yours, feeling like you’re wasting your time. Not a great start, is it?
