Cover Letter Writing Tips

Browse Monster's expert advice on how to write a cover letter:
How do online and offline cover letters differ? The basic rules of style, brevity and clarity that apply to any covering letter also apply when you’re making job applications online.
Do employers actually read cover letters? When applying for jobs, sending your CV without a brief covering letter explaining your purpose will be confusing and most likely forgotten.
How do I make a prospective application? Sending a speculative application can be a very effective method of securing a new job even if they’re not advertising.
