Cover letters are an introduction to your skills, and don’t need to contain all the information you would include in your resume. All you need is the key spotlights that present your strongest selling points and demonstrate why you’d be a great match for the job. You don’t want to repeat your resume word for word, but instead present key details of your resume in context with this specific target job.
Take a look at skills sought in the job advertisement, and use your cover letter to explain how your history and talents make you a match. For example, if applying for a role as assistant to the art director, you can discuss your excellent skills in organization, customer service, artist relations, and public relations. Speak about how you’re great at managing projects, schedules, deadlines, and marketing. Event management can also be another valuable skill.
