What is the difference between a resume and a cover letter?

1 min


The cover letter is your opportunity to address things that can’t, or shouldn’t, be put in the CV. The cover letter is you, talking to the hiring manager, explaining why you should be given an interview.

The CV needs to be written to hit all the keywords that the job description mentions. A cover letter writing service UK is more interactive, allowing you to provide anecdotes that highlight aspects of your career that are pertinent to the job, as well as providing a bit more background than just the CV.

It also demonstrates your writing abilities, so grammar, spelling, and punctuation are critical. If there is anything in the job description that couldn’t go in the CV, the cover letter is a good place. In addition, if there is anything about the company you find out and you want to acknowledge before the interview, such as the fact that the company got a new client and you happen to know everything about that market segment, you can highlight it in the cover letter.
