How to Write a Compelling Resume Cover Letter [Infographic]

Despite all the technology available, many still believe the biggest key to job search success is a killer resume. What we tend to forget, however, is that for many companies, your resume is often not the first thing read by HR. That distinction falls to the resume cover letter.

And if your cover letter isn’t as powerful as your resume itself, your job search may not get very far.

Think of your resume cover letter as a foot in the door. If it’s good enough, powerful enough, it will keep the door from closing prematurely. A weak cover letter can do just the opposite. A hiring manager confronted with a poor cover letter might just slam that metaphorical door in your resume’s face. And no one wants that to happen.

So for an easy-to-read guide to writing a strong cover letter, take a look at this infographic from Infographic Design Services. It’s filled with helpful tips, suggested structures, and sample templates.

As you’ll see, it also provides all the basics you need to write a cover letter worthy of your killer resume.
