Writing cover letters can be tedious and everyone hates to write one. But unfortunately, they are really important in the job search process so if you're looking for a job it's time to get your cover letter writing skills in order.
A good cover letter can advance your application while a poorly written letter (or none at all) can do just the opposite. Recruiters and hiring managers often cite the cover letter as the reason one candidate may have been chosen for an interview over the other. So, it’s critical that you don’t overlook this important step. Even if you’re just passively seeking and come across an interesting job opportunity, take the time to submit a well written letter; it's great practice. Here are some other reasons why a cover letter is still important.
