Should you send a cover letter for each job to which you apply? Absolutely! However, your cover letter has a life expectancy of about 10 to 15 seconds. If your cover letter is written like a job description, it doesn’t have a chance. You should realize that your entire career search process can be hindered by a simple (or not-so-simple) cover letter.
Today, the cover letter is inserted into the cover of an email to which the resume is attached. The term "cover letter" refers to the days during which we used snail mail to send our resumes to the employer. Of course, today, everything is done online, whether via email or "cut and paste" into the employer's job site. We prepare this document for you with the idea that it conveys a quick, personal, but concise idea about why you are attaching your resume and your qualifications. You will customize it for each situation. A cover letter is a courtesy, but often an expected one. Without it, you will not be making a favorable impression.
