A cover letter is the most important letter sent during the recruitment process. It decides your future in the recruitment process, whether you would receive an interview call or not. Hence, take efforts to draft a smartly written resume cover letter. This letter is sent along with the resume, therefore it should complement and not look like a copy of the resume. Place emphasis on the important aspects of your academic and internship experience. Let the employee know how you would be suitable for the job. As you are applying for an entry-level position, the employee will judge you based on your academic performance, performance in extra-curricular activities, internship details and work experience (if any).
