Earn the Interview: Write a Cover Letter That Doesn’t Suck

Cover Letter Words

I read an article recently that detailed why 95% of recruiters don’t read cover letters. One recruiter put it best when he said cover letters were generally so bad, he concluded they weren’t worth reading.

From the candidate perspective, it is clear we don’t like writing them: “Well, it doesn’t say a cover letter is required, so I must not need to send one, right?” Wrong!
