    @mbrogan brought up an interesting comment about cover letters during our Candidate Experience meeting and I brought the question to LinkedIn – Do you find cover letters valuable? The poll has over 2,100 votes and 160 comments. https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6699369904035938304/

    So, do you find cover letters valuable?

    @shannonpritchett , Loving the conversation this has started.

    The idea that, from a fairness standpoint, the cover letter is a notable chance for a candidate to share why they think they’re the best fit for the job is worthy of discussion as over 80% of the +2k respondents say that “No” it doesn’t make a difference or they don’t read it.

    Very interesting and fun conversation. (Wait, what year is it again?)

    Either way – here are the quick results from a question related to the fairness element that was asked in our Candidate Experience meeting yesterday. Sample includes ~25 companies.
