Do you prepare cover letters?

When applying for jobs, it's becoming increasingly common for companies to request a cover letter as part of the application process.

A cover letter is a great way to showcase your personality and passion for the role, while your resume outlines your skills and experience.

However, some recruiters and employers may need more time to read every cover letter. That said, not all employers are the same; some may value a cover letter more than others.

Including a cover letter with your application is always a good idea.

This way, you can personalize your application to the specific company and role you're applying for. Doing so can help you stand out from applicants who may only send a resume.

Remember, every organization is unique and will have different expectations for the role they're hiring for. So, including a cover letter is a great way to show that you've done your research and are genuinely interested in the position.
