Cover Letter General Question

Are cover letters important?

Absolutely! There are many good reason why you should include one.

Without a cover memo, it is difficult to figure out which position or location a job candidate is interested in.

Some people expect to see them. A resume unaccompanied by a cover letter may come across to HR folks as an act of laziness.

Cover letters can give a hint of the personality, the passion, the interests of the applicant, in contrast to the boring facts of the resume.

With that said, cover letters should be very brief. Long letters probably won't get read. The cover letter is a way for candidates to emphasize certain experiences, demonstrate writing skills, and explain why they are interested in the company.
