Cover letters are a hot topic these days. Some say they are worthless; others say they are priceless. A recent study by Zip Recruiter indicates that 50% of hiring managers require a cover letter and that of those, two thirds of them reject an applicant because of something included in the cover letter.

Most of it stems from experts with outdated notions about what a cover letter’s real purpose is. Here are three myths about cover letters you shouldn’t believe. [Source: Aol Jobs]
