Many jobseekers wonder whether cover letters still matter. The truth is that a cover letter will either emphasize or detract from the rest of your job materials. It can even be the reason why a hiring manager rejects your application. A good cover letter is genuine, gracious, and responds to the description of a position.
Even if you are writing your first cover letter, it is possible to make a positive impression on an employer that can help you get hired. Don't rewrite your resume in letter form. Instead, try to get the attention of your reader in the first paragraph and sustain it throughout your letter.
