I find it hard to convince myself (after reading that recruiters only scan cover letter for some seconds, and if convinced go to resume) to put real interest into writing cover letter (& resume).
I feel they first have a glance on no. of years of experience, no gaps, see just some visual numbers, easy to see, & sort. They do not owe us to read carefully. They have too many resumes, will go on to scan next one.
When my grandma had vision and hearing deficiencies, I used to feel as if I don't fully exist for her. Same way I feel about HR people.
