Do I have to have a cover letter?

I am applying for my first job. I have my resume well built based on my experiences. Do I have to have a cover letter included?

I’m going to preach the opposite.

Give yourself a competitive advantage

If they ASK FOR A COVER LETTER:

  • Assume it will be read

Seems pretty straightforward to me…

If you don’t have a contact person - craft it for the company and the position.
