The short answer is yes. The covering letter is a very important part of your job application. Sending out your resume provides the employer with information about you and what skills and experience you have. The covering letter takes the next step further by explaining exactly how you meet their requirements and why you want to work for their company and what you can do for them. It’s not only polite and respectful, but it’s also professional and shows genuine interest in the company and the job. It can say to the employer “this person wants to work for me. They really want the job and they know what we are after and can meet our requirements.”
Generally a covering letter can be about 1 page long unless the job application specifies otherwise.
