Thinking about Cover Letters
There are genuine debates, in this age of computer-scanned resumes, about how much longer prospective employers will continue to ask for cover letters as part of the standard application package. One thing is sure — many job postings today still require this specialized document. The cover letter provides information to link the applicants skills and experiences to the job ad in a more narrative (storytelling) fashion than is possible with a resume.
