A project officer cover letter is a very important document that helps you apply for a new job.

That being said, if your resume is missing some required competencies as a project officer, a cover letter can overcome this by providing additional information to the employer.

While a project officer cover letter should not duplicate information in a resume, there are some overlapping areas that you can take advantage of.

The following sample will provide you with the basics of a well-written cover letter for a project officer resume.
