Career professionals offer so many different opinions regarding whether cover letters should be sent with your resume. Well, most resumes are emailed today and I highly recommend you enter your cover letter in the body of the email or as an attachment when applying for a job.

Your cover letter should address what position you are applying for and provide information directly in support of what experience the position is requiring. Additionally, you "must" convey why you are the person for the job by combining your experience in clear accomplishment oriented statements that will highlight your success.

Does your cover letter look like this sample? If not, you might want to rethink how your first impression convey's why an employer should hire you.
