Cover letters are used to introduce yourself and your resume, while clearly stating your desire to apply for a job position in a new company or make yourself available for a job position within a company. The cover letter is the formal introduction that provides a brief explanation of your job field, experience, areas of expertise and relevant knowledge in relationship to the job being applied for.
