How to Write a Cover Letter That Sounds Like YOU (and Gets Noticed)

I hate cover letters. They add so much stress to the already uncomfortable and grueling job hunt. Every time I’m writing one, I find myself wondering: Do people even read these?
Unfortunately, the answer is “yes.” But, there are some ways to make the process a little less terrible. I asked Amy Gallo, Harvard Business Review editor and author of “How to Write a Cover Letter,” for her advice.

I even wrote a new cover letter that has her blessing.
