Is a cover letter still a crucial part of the modern-day job application process?
Cover letters you send can either weaken or strengthen your application. If you send generic letters that don’t tell employers you are genuinely interested in working for them, you miss an opportunity to stand out and be noticed.
A customized cover letter builds alignment between your skills/experience and the employer and their role, and adds value to your resume.
Consider your cover letter your marketing pitch and always tailor it to a specific role.
🟩 The cover letter is actually not about you, it is about what you can do for your prospective employer
🟩 Focus on proving how you can add value
🟩 DO NOT repeat your resume
🟩 Send it ONLY if required in the job posting
