Understand the point of a cover letter

When writing a cover letter it is important to understand the significance of it. One's cover letter should go beyond their work history and must include the things that cannot be found in a resume.

It should include personal traits, work habits, inter and intrapersonal skills, achievements, and even one's enthusiasm for the job.

Your cover letter is like a simple introduction of who you are and what makes you a strong candidate for the company.
