Developing quality written correspondence in your job search (besides resumes) is one of the most important aspects of the entire process -- and often the most neglected. People spend days, even weeks creating the perfect resume. However, when it comes to composing an effective letter, most people find the best example available, make a few changes and produce a letter that can be used for almost anything. Unfortunately, employers can spot these a mile away.
There are a number of important points you should keep in mind as you write to employers. This includes all types of job search correspondence, not just cover letters.
A cover letter should accompany every resume that you send out. They compliment each other and work as a team. The purpose of the letter is to personalize your resume for the employer and enable you to elaborate more fully on your qualifications.
