Are cover letters dead in 2023? While many may argue that cover letters are no longer necessary, I believe that they can be one of the most powerful parts of a job application if written exceptionally well. Cover letters can provide a platform to showcase soft skills, which are important in any job application.

I also advised job seekers to research the company they are applying to and find creative ways to show their soft skills rather than just stating them. Cover letters can also give more context to career transitioners and explain why they are making the switch.

I provided two examples of cover letters to illustrate how to make them stand out. So, if you’re looking to make your job application stand out, this is the episode for you.
