Why Write a Cover Letter?
Should a Cover Letter Be Simple or Eye-catching?
Whatever cover letter format you choose, it is important that it is in step with your resume. If you use an infographic resume to apply for a job posting in a creative industry, the body of your cover letter should follow the same style. If you work in a traditional industry and you apply to a job posting in human resources or law, for example, a simple, professional format and appearance may be best. Therefore, a great cover letter is like a great resume—they should both be appropriate to the job application they are intended to support.
If you want assistance in building a great cover letter, you can make use of ResumeHelp’s cover letter builder.
