What is a Cover Letter/Letter of Application?

The purpose of a cover letter, sometimes called letter of application, is to introduce yourself and briefly explain how you can benefit a potential employer. The goal is to have your letter and resume read, convincing the reader that you should be interviewed. The letter should be clear, brief, and well written, highlighting your most notable accomplishments and relating them to the position opening.
