If I Was Running A Company…Cover Letters

There is debate if it is necessary to have cover letters.  Here’s the breakdown:

  • Recruiters look for information of your background.
  • Hiring Managers look for style and substance.

Is it important to have a cover letter?  Yes, but the cover letter starts in the second round when the Hiring Manager receives it from HR/Recruiting department.  So when writing a cover letter, focus on the hiring manager, not the recruiter (unless the hiring manager is the recruiter).
