|Creating a Cover Letter|
Two types of cover letters exist - general and job-specific. Cover letters are not required when applying for a job, but are recommended.
1. General Cover Letters
General cover letters are associated with one existing resume and are usually not targeted for a specific job. If a general cover letter exists, it is automatically included when applying for a job unless a job-specific cover letter is created.
To create a general cover letter
To edit a general cover letter, click the "Edit" link on the "My Resumes" page.
2. Job-Specific Cover Letters
Job-specific cover letters are created when applying for a particular job and are usually targeted specifically at that job. If a job-specific cover letter is not created, the general cover letter, if it exits, is automatically included with the application.
To create a job-specific cover letter, see Applying for a Job.
