A cover letter is a writing sample that complements your resume with a strong, tailored presentation. A good cover letter can increase your chances of being interviewed. To write an effective cover letter you want to make sure that you keep it short and targeted to the positions; it should not be a recap of your entire resume. A good cover letter highlights and enhances the skills and experiences that match with the job description.
