Why you need a Professional Cover Letter

Cover lettersMid-career to senior jobseekers should have a cover letter which can also be used as a professional job intro email.
Applying to a job with a resume plus cover letter, makes your application more professional; because these documents are viewed by the managers as snap shot of the professionalism of the candidate.
A resume plus cover letter shows the quality of the work you will deliver once hired, AND that you are taking the application for a job at their company as very important indeeed!!
Create an email containing your resume plus cover letter, keep in your email drafts folder, so  if you need to dash off a resume immediately, when someone says send me your resume, you can send it right away with a professional intro/cover letter as the email intro.
Also when you apply to jobs you may notice many companies are checking the send cover letter also, button.
Take as much care in the creation of your cover letter as you do your resume. Remember your cover letter may be all the manager reads!!!
