Recruiters specialize in hiring for specific industries or companies. The recruitment process involves screening jobseekers and placing the most qualified candidates in positions that an employer may not advertise to the public.
Even if a recruiter is not trying to fill a job that suits you, he or she will keep your information on file if they think you could be the right person for another position down the road. Unless you are responding to an advertisement for a specific position, your cover letter should give a recruiter a general sense of your background, experience, and skills. When you write to a recruiter, you should emphasize your qualifications for the industry or companies in which they place jobseekers.
