Fintan O'Toole, the chairman of the Croydon Chamber of Commerce and a HR Expert, believes that a cover letter is there to display the skills and attributes that a jobseeker can offer to a potential employer.
On top of this, Mr O'Toole noted that a person's resume should always be exclusive to one role, instead of "being a broad brush application to any job".
The HR Expert acknowledged: "When you're applying for a job, you need to be very specific in identifying what it is that the potential employer is looking for."
In other advice when applying for a job, Tara Daynes, a HR consultant and trainer, recently pointed out that people should display a long-term commitment to a company in order to boost their chances of employment.
This is because a hiring manager is more likely to opt for someone who intends to stick around for a while, instead of a jobseeker who is just there until a better opportunity comes along.
