Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video Cover letter, part of BIM Management: Careers.
- Anytime that you send…your resume in to a firm…particularly, if you're sending it online…and you're not sure who's going…to be reading that resume…I always like to…send a cover letter with that resume.…The cover letter should…introduce who you are,…and why you're interested in the role.…It also should have some…of the very top skills that this company,…and this role, may find to be important.…Ideally, the cover letter…should also feel personal.…
While your actual resume…or CV may be very technical and to the point…about certain things that you've done…your cover letter should…be more of a personal…conversation so that they get…a feeling of what your personality…is, and what your fit…within the organization may be.…Then it should end with…a statement that's something…along the lines of…"looking forward to discussing…with you," and then…finishing off that sentence.…We actually have an example…of a variation of a cover letter…that I used rather recently.…
It started off with my name,…address and the date.…That just gives them an idea…
