Is the cover letter dead or slowly dying in the face of exciting social media alternatives? Or is it alive and kicking? The industry is a little schizophrenic on this issue, as although surveys show that 90 percent of cover letters are ignored, many companies still ask for cover letters but the number is reducing. According to this 2014 SHRM study, just 33 percent of companies with under 500 people ask for a cover letter compared to just 17 percent of employers with more than 500 staff. So, cover letters are not dead, but dying and probably of lower importance in larger organizations.
