The cover letter that you send with your resume always focuses on your experience and skills, which will set you apart from all the candidates. You should never reproduce your entire resume in your covering letter, but it is very important to highlight your accomplishments and skills with the specific requirements mentioned in the job description. Sales professionals always look for assistants who will understand the difference in a way the sales teams and other departments usually operate. Here are some essentials that you need to take care of while writing a cover letter.
