The resume and cover letter are important elements of the job search process, as they allow you to introduce yourself to potential employers and show why you’re a good fit for a position. The purpose of a résumé is to provide a summary of your experiences, skills, and qualifications; it outlines your professional story. Your cover letter supplements your resume and provides evidence that you are a great fit for the job. It elaborates on your key skills and strengths, outlining how you will apply them to meet the requirements outlined in the posting.
