This is the perfect time for you to learn how to write your cover letter. There was a
time around a decade or two ago that you need not submit it along with your resume.
Not anymore as most companies look for it together with the resume. Although, there
are some job announcements that indicate that it is no longer needed. However, if the
job ads did not mention whether it is needed or not, then you should send your cover
letter together with the resume. You should know that it is the first thing that gets
noticed. If it does not grab the attention of the recruiter, then it is all for nothing.
Remember that there are a lot of applicants for the position that you are vying for.

The first thing that you should do when writing one is to check out several cover letter
examples. You will find out that there are lots of them. Even if there are a lot, you
should be able to find all the basic elements in it. But how it is written should be
customized to the specific job that you are looking for. Your previous work
experiences and skills should be mentioned especially if these are the qualities that the
company is searching for. If you lack experience, well you can make mention of your
education, special awards, honors and any extra-curricular activities that will help
boost your application to the eyes of the employer. If you are getting confused as to
how it will turn out, then check out several cover letter examples to keep you on track.
