A Cover Letter is a 1-page business document that needs to be sent together with your resume/CV when applying for a new job and serves to express your interest in the position. The Cover Letter you include in your job application needs to contain and explain details about your credentials and experience for this specific job/company and showcase your interest in the position.
The importance of a well-crafted cover letter cannot be emphasized enough. Cover letters allow you to tell a story about where you’ve been in the professional sphere, where you hope to go, and more specifically, why you’re applying for the job at hand. The best ones showcase a jobseeker’s personality, skills, and accomplishments, and breathe life and additional value into the accompanying resume (without being a repeat of what appears on the resume).
A business letter is a professional piece of correspondence. If you are writing a cover letter, letter of recommendation, or thank you note, you will need to follow the formal conventions of a business letter. Following these guidelines is important. It sets the tone that you are taking the correspondence seriously and ensures that the letter recipient can focus on your message (and not formatting inconsistencies, typos, or any other small errors).
