What do job recruiters look for in cover letters?

Job recruiters look for numerous things in cover letters so be sure to highlight your skills and talents. A recruiter's job is to get the best talent for the least amount of money. If you are a qualified employee who knows your value, then underselling your talent is less likely. Be sure to exude confidence in your cover letter by simply stating your talents and your desire to work. Then, give a brief list of your skill set.
