Quickly,  what is a COVER LETTER? Hmm... A Big question if you ask me, but in simple terms, a cover letter is letter that covers, I.e it gives details about the undercovered aspects or areas of your cv or resume. Let me add that recently I found that resumes are not only for the purpose of job searching but that's a topic for another day.
