Cover Letters on your Resume

Typically when working with recruiters a cover letter won’t be necessary, but for those job seekers who are unassisted in their search, a cover letter is still a valuable part of the process.

When responding to job postings, whether it be for an Administrative Assistant; Executive Assistant or even a Temporary Position, always include a cover letter along with your resume. From the content to the presentation, how you format your cover letter is extremely important. Taking the time to personalize your letter is key. If possible, address it to the hiring manager by name, and if you know an individual working there, make sure to mention their name as well.

Research the company and include what you’ve learned. Remember to highlight skills and elaborate on how you can be an asset to the company. Keep it short, simple and be sure to follow the company’s directions on how to submit your cover letter and resume.

Good Luck!
