In today’s competitive job market, when everyone is driving towards perfection, and extensive presentation of their skillsets, what you can do to stand out from the crowd is to write an attractive and captivating CV. Your Curriculum Vitae comprises all essential information that your employer may be looking for, and will only take a glance at it, to identify and spot you to offer that big break you were looking for.
Your CV (or resume) should contain your personal details, your competencies, your professional details, your goals and objectives, strengths and weaknesses, all perfectly organized and clipped only in two (or three) pages.
When you apply for a job with a CV, it’s important to include a cover letter. The cover letter (or covering letter) allows you to make a favorable first impression, using narrative in your own tone of voice to catch the reader’s attention and encourage her to give a serious review to your attached resume.
While we all know that a resume is important to the job search process, it is not necessarily the most important document you will need to secure an interview. At times, the cover letter is as important as your CV.
Your CV may be the shop window that displays your wares to a potential employer but a covering letter is a sign that attracts them in the first place.
A cover letter provides further detail on how your skill set aligns with the role, what you can bring to the team and why you want the position. Cover letters allow recruiters to develop a better understanding of your suitability for a position and this is often where first impressions are made in the mind of an employer, making it one of the most critical components of a job application.
Hence, the cover letter can be more important than your CV! – The Telegraph
Your cover letter directly addresses the Chair at the other end and gives you a freehold to furnish it with all not-so-essential details, or maybe your in-depth knowledge about the company you are applying to, its products and services and how you can turn out to be a valuable resource for them. Even in cases where your employer didn’t find your CV interesting enough, your cover letter can make them think twice before they think of rejecting your profile.
