Is a cover letter important for technical resumes. I really haven't looked much for a job.
Thanks,
Brandon

Hiring managers are a quirky bunch. Some consider the cover letter to be equal in importance to the resume, while others pay little or no attention to it. Hedge your bets, construct a carefully worded cover letter specific to the requirements of the job you're applying for. Summarize what you're looking for, and what experience you have that makes you a good fit for the employer's open position. Be sure to include any info that might relate to your situation (no relo assistance needed, require sponsorship, available in 30 days, willing to travel etc.)
Good Luck

Yeah, I agree with Lance.
I generally do a little intro, and follow up with why I am interested in the position. Then finish up with the experience in my background which I feel makes me a good match for the job.
