Cover Letter for Administration Jobs
During the job recruitment process, letters are the best medium to communicate with the employer. Most candidates stray away from drafting a cover letter and send a resume alone to apply for any job. Such job applications end up in the trash bin. To make sure that you get a call for an interview, you need to draft an effective cover letter that explains your suitability for the job and direct the employer to go through your resume. By reading the letter, the employer must be able to understand why you have send the letter, the exact job profile you are applying for and your eligibility for the job.
