Are cover letters really still needed? Yes! And this webinar will show you how to write effective cover letters without spending too much time on them.
Here are some stats that prove cover letters are still necessary: A ResumeLab survey of 200 hiring managers found that 83% of the time, a great cover letter was enough to sway them to extend a job interview to a candidate with a less-than-perfect resume.
A majority of hiring managers said cover letters were crucial to their hiring decisions, and 77% give preference to candidates who submit one, even if they’re deemed optional on the application form. A similar percentage share always expects the document, even if they’re not required in order to apply.
A study by ResumeGo found that applications with cover letters carefully tailored to individual job descriptions yielded over 50% more interviews than job applications submitted without a letter.
In this webinar, a FlexJobs career coach will discuss how to write great cover letters for your remote job applications.
