When was the last time to you read a WhatsApp message that was longer than the screen space?
Or spent an extra minute reading a LinkedIn post that was two paragraphs?
We live in a world of soundbites, but details still matter—especially when it comes to your cover letter.
The biggest challenge on a two-page resume is explaining your past work experience crisply and concisely. In fact, many companies use AI-based programs and algorithms to parse out the basic details of your resume.
That’s why a well-written cover letter is more important than ever. Not only does it bring your personal side front and center—something technology can’t replace—it strengthens your unique selling proposition.
And more importantly, your cover letter becomes your story. It's a tool used by a recruiter or the person referring you to share your authentic story to the hiring manager.
