While your cover letter introduces the reader to your skills and abilities, the resume elaborates the previous job roles that you have undertaken so far, down the career line. Where relevancy and precision in the details that you include in your resume matters more than your job search, you need to use your application as a tool through which you can express your willingness to share the vision of the company and serve for its progress, with you being an essential participant in the ongoing developmental process.
