Does A Covering Letter Matter When You Apply For A Job?

Job applications, does your covering letter matter?

The short answer is yes, and let me explain why.

If you go that extra step and do a covering letter it immediately sets you apart from the majority of candidates who won't bother.

Secondly, it puts you in a position whereby if you've written a really good covering letter, the hiring manager is already looking at your CV as if you're a good candidate.

So if you want to increase your chances of getting job interview invites take the time to do a good covering letter.
