CEO of ITtechExec Stephen Van Vreede discusses the crucial importance of cover letters as a first step to getting hiring managers to take a look at resumes.
Rochester, NY — Jul 28, 2015 — Stephen Van Vreede, CEO of ITtechExec, published a new article titled “Don’t Make These Cover Letter Faux Pas.” In the article, he explains the top five biggest mistakes people make when writing their cover letters, stating that even perfect resumes can’t succeed without the help of an effective cover letter.
Van Vreede says, “In the world of hiring, there’s a lot of attention paid to writing the perfect resume. Especially for those of us who are better at coding than writing, getting the resume help we need can be a crucial step on our career path. But for every perfect resume in the world, there seems to be at least double the amount of lackluster cover letters. That’s because people don’t understand that a resume isn’t just a resume — the cover letter is part of the package, too. This is to say: your cover letter should never be an afterthought.”
