Cover Letter Sample Addressing Current Unemployment

Cover Letter Sample Addressing Current Unemployment


A cover letter isn't ever going to win you a job by itself, but a badly worded letter is going to cause doubts in the employers mind right from the start.

A good cover letter explains why you, over all the other candidates, are worth taking the time to find out more about. This is designed for an individual who is unemployed and looking to get back into work. If you think your Covering Letter is ready to provide your resume with some helpful back up, create your cover letter on Monster now.
