Write an interview-winning cover letter
A well-written cover letter will help you flesh out the professional achievements found in your resume, and expand on the parts of your experience that are most relevant to the job at hand. Writing a great cover letter is easy when you have the right tools and resources to guide you through the process.
Pick the right format
Format matters in cover letters. You could be highly qualified but if your cover letter is sloppy, poorly designed and unprofessionally formatted, hiring managers will question your enthusiasm (and possibly your fit!) for the job.

Resume-Now’s cover letter templates will give your cover letter a polished and professional look that will turn hiring managers’ heads and make them want to know more about you. With several styles to choose from, you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you. And we’ll make sure you’ve got all the right pieces, such as sections, margins, alignment and keywords in place.
