Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
In the modern age, when most job applications are done online, many people opt to skip on uploading a cover letter and get right to their resume. This is a big No-No according to Jessica, an HR professional in Houston, TX who has seen a lot of job applications minus a cover letter:
“Your cover letter gives an employer a snap shot of you. It’s an important part of your sales pitch and can improve your chances of getting an interview.” For those that don’t submit a cover letter, she states, it’s possible that, “you’ll just be applying and applying without ever getting called in for an interview.”
For those that don’t know how to effectively write a cover letter, or don't even truly know what one is, there is good news.
Dormroom2Boardroom.com is setting out to educate job seekers on writing cover letters through Cover Letter Week.
