B School recruitment: Cover letters for cold calls, interviews and resumes
Here are three sample cover letters for three different recruitment opportunities. A warm call, an interview call and a cold call! While the material in all three letters is the same it is presented differently based on the research done on the role I was applying for. A cover letter does everything that a resume cannot. It answers questions that your resume may raise, identifies strengths that your resume may not highlight and most importantly it showcases the groundwork you have done by researching the business and the position and the fit of both with your profile. Just like a business school essay, a good cover letter helps you stand out from the other 10,000 applicants for the position you have just applied for.
