For example, thesciencejobs.com, a leading career site stands within top 10 science job searches in Google for most of the job related keywords found that most of the job seekers have a 'ready to paste' cover letter on their hand. Whatever the vacancy requirement, they just copy n paste the very same cover letter to every job application. This is totally wrong and will not help you to stands out from the crowd.
What we suggest is that
- Read the vacancy advertisement carefully
- Prepare your cover letter as per the requirement of the vacancy advert
- Modify (slightly) the CV to suite to the requirement
