Send a Cover Letter, or not?
When a job application doesn't ask for a cover letter, is it better to send one along anyway? Many of the IBD/S&T internship positions on my OCR website (firms range from BBs to 3-man shops, all FO positions) require only a resume, but hat can't be enough on which to make an informed decision on whom to select for an interview, can it? Would a cover letter in that situation give me an advantage, or would it be ignored?
The jobs usually don't require a transcript either. In that case, should I bother sending mine? (My transcript is not that great - GPA's alright, but a couple of bad grades)
