How to Send an Email Cover Letter and Resume
An email cover letter is a document sent with your resume to provide additional information on your expertise. It is written to provide information on why you are qualified for the job you are applying for and to explain the reasons for your interest in the company.
When you’re sending an email cover letter, it’s important to follow the employer’s instructions on how to submit your cover letter and resume. You need to make sure that your email cover letters are written as well as any other correspondence you send.
Even though it’s quick and easy to send an email, it doesn’t mean that you should write anything less than a detailed cover letter focused on why you are a good match for the job you are applying for.
