When you realize there are at least 6 good reasons to send a CV cover letter, it is surprising that some people still don't write and send one with their CV when applying for a new job. Perhaps it's because they don't understand the importance of this cover letter, or may be they are just too lazy to send one.

That's never good enough; when you are trying to make an impression with your job application, you cannot afford not to send a CV cover letter.

Here is why:

  1. Some hiring managers only read the covering letter, so if there isn't one you're out;
  2. The CV covering letter allows you to express your interest in a precise and targeted way;
  3. Recruitment advertisers often ask for some specific information which belongs in the covering letter;
  4. You will be seen as (a) lazy or (b) disinterested if you don't send a covering letter;

  5. The main advantage of the cover letter is that you can match yourself to the employer's needs;
  6. You can demonstrate why you are the strongest candidate as well as gently flattering the receiver.

When you do send a CV cover letter that is well written and demonstrates your interest and suitability, you are giving your self the best possible start to an eventual relationship with the prospective employer.

You should not underestimate the importance of this cover letter in your approach to the new organization; they expect you to make an effort and help them to select you for interview.

So when you realize there are at least 6 good reasons to send a CV cover letter, there is no excuse for some people not to write and send one with their CV when applying for a new job. If you did not previously understand the importance of this cover letter, you should think differently now so don't let yourself down by being too lazy to send one.
