It's likely the first point of contact between you and a hiring manager, so it has to be in top form if you want to be called in for a job interview. It's a quick and easy way to make sure your candidacy for the job is as strong as possible.
Writing a cover letter is an essential part of almost every job application.
Not only do you have to make sure it sells your skills and abilities to recruiters, you also need to do it a clear and concise manner – that ultimately persuades the reader to want to meet you.
