FAQ: Resume Cover Pages
Q: Does a resume need a cover page?
Cover letters are standard nowadays. Even if the job says that it doesn’t require a cover page, it’s still a good idea to include a cover letter to indicate your communication skills, showcase who you are as a person, and actively ask for the job interview. You can find cover letter examples at ResumeHelp to help you push your cover letter writing skills to the next level.
Q: Should I match my cover page “look” with my resume?
Matching your cover page and your resume allows you to present a united front that makes your personal brand very apparent. The best cover letter will incorporate elements of your resume so a hiring manager gets a sense of who you really are. Try to match both colors and fonts from your cover letter and resume for best results.
Q: Can I include information on my cover page that isn’t in my resume?
Absolutely. In fact, it’s best not to just rehash all the information in your resume. If you’re just going over the information in your resume, why would a hiring manager need to read the cover letter in the first place? Instead, provide more detailed information on specific career highlights and skills that the hiring manager really wants to hear. Although some of the information might overlap, it’s best to make sure that the hiring manager feels like reading your cover letter gives them some extra information.
