An unusually short post from me this time around…. What do you mean, “Phew”? !!!
Recently I’ve been having some interesting discussions and debates on the relevance of our dear o’l friend, the cover letter in todays recruitment practices and processes.
I am firmly in the, “there’re a waste of time and hardly ever read anyway” camp but what do others think?
Are cover letters still a necessary requirement in the recruitment world of today or should they be banished to the crypts of recruitment past?
I’ve set up a little poll on LinkedIn and will be reporting on the findings, if enough people participate that is.
Simply vote by clicking on this link - http://t.co/A2qes2w to be taken to the poll (which is set to expire on Friday 19th August 2011)
Let the debate begin
