Writing a Resume Cover Letter

Writing a resume cover letter is a crucial part of your job application. 
If you don’t include one, any chances you might have of securing that dream job will dramatically decrease. But there is one exception! The only time you should not forward a cover letter is when you are specifically asked not to.

Employers have to sift through hundreds of applications to find ‘the one'—hence the need for parameters. And if you can't follow the simple instructions set out in the job advertisement, then how likely are you to follow instructions in the workplace?
