We used to have this conversation at work… cover letter yes or no? As a recruiter, I scan the resume to see if the applicant meets minimum qualifications. I don’t much bother with the cover letters. However… and this is big however… hiring managers love the cover letters! Some absolutely require them.
Cover letters should include what you know about the company you are applying for and why you are a good fit for this position. It’s more personal and can explain some things that your resume can’t. It gives hiring managers a snapshot of your motivation and character.
Yes, do include cover letters.
