A cover letter is of utmost importance when you apply for a job. Just a resume would not be of much help until it is forwarded with a cover letter. Cover letter establishes kind of personal communication with the hiring manager where as resume acts as an endorsement for your qualifications and work experiences.

Cover letter should basically contain brief information about why you think you are fit for the job and what value can be you add to the organization. Do not make your cover letter look like your resume in just reformatted way. Be clear and maintain the flow. Below is a Resume cover letter sample.
