Your Name Types
The cover letter adds to your attractiveness as a candidate in three ways.
Highlighting : You can give those positive characteristics of greatest interest to a particular employer more prominence in the cover letter than you did in your resume.
Reframing : Through your cover letter, you can put some of your experiences in a frame of reference that more closely meets the needs of the employer.
New material : Your cover letter can include material of interest to an employer that would be difficult to present in a resume. Your motivation for wanting to work for that particular company is an example.
