A cover letter is a one-page letter that you include with your job application. A cover letter should always be included, unless the job advertisement clearly says not to.
The cover letter is a tool to help introduce yourself to the hiring manager. It should demonstrate your interest in the company or a specific vacancy, draw attention to your resume and motivate the reader to interview you.
A cover letter is not a copy of your resume. Your resume lists your skills, but your cover letter should be an opportunity to highlight how you have put those skills to use.
Writing a custom cover letter for each job you apply for can be time consuming, but it’s important to take the time and effort to show the company why you are a perfect fit for the job.
Here is a sample cover letter for the job of a Math Tutor for your guidance:
