Because there’s a lot of information that goes on a resume, you typically don’t have space to be descriptive or add personal details. A cover letter can impress a hiring manager by describing your experience and skills more thoroughly. You can use full sentences to describe your job duties and qualifications rather than the bullet points on a resume. This not only better exhibits your written communication skills but also gives you the opportunity to present yourself as an asset to the company.
If your cover letter is the same as your resume, you’ve missed a golden opportunity to set yourself apart from other applicants. Make your cover letter stand out by including specific information about your accomplishments and what you would bring to the role as an employee. Use your cover letter to tell your story of prior achievements and desire for future success with the company.
