Here's a question, I see that you can apply to jobs with just your resume, and there isn't an opportunity to include a cover letter. This astounds me because that's really where a business can learn your values and what you can offer them. Does anyone recommend a way around this? I thought about uploading a two page resume with the cover letter included. It seems a loss not to include that edge.

Interesting that you say this - our org eliminated cover letters altogether because we felt like people were making it all about themselves vs what they could offer the company. The resumes that are tailored well, and show skills/talents do end up getting through without all the fluff and we use the interview to get to know them better. No one was reading the cover letters, so it was kinda pointless

Thank you! Unfortunately that makes total sense. I see how much experience can exceeed education and without a higher level education on the resume it doesn't come across as strong and the letter can help support with showing that experience level. I try to include it as a strategy and instead by offering ideas and scenarios of how I would market/sell a product or boost an organization's presence in the field. Thanks again for taking the time to reply. I think I'll try to keep it as a second page to a resume and hopefully it will help it stand out.

I started in my career in 2004 have only used a cover letter once. Also when I’ve interviewed other people HR never provides the cover letters only the resumes. Kinda seems like a waste to write them tbh
