Resumes always need an accompanying letter that briefly introduces you and your resume. A well-written resume will allow you to apply for employment opportunities with confidence. The cover letter, however, will hopefully convince the reader to place your resume in the "to be interviewed" pile. Use the cover
letter as your marketing tool and sell yourself to the reader. How well you do this can be measured by how many calls you receive for interviews. Spend as much time as necessary to produce a top-notch cover letter.
