Many people think that it is ok to send a resume without a cover letter. Well for those here is a fact. Unless you like to send your resume into other people's trashcans, make sure that a cover letter accompanies your resume. It does not merely introduce your resume but entices the employer to look for it. Your resume talks about you, your cover letter talks about your intended employer — and how your employer can benefit from the splendid assets you offer. Describe special benefits that set you above other applicants. So make sure that you get have yourself covered with a cover letter before sending out your resume.
