As much as a Resume is a document that highlights your skills, experiences and education, it's actually not about you. Ultimately, your resume is for the employer to learn how you might be able to do the job for them. Keeping your audience in mind is critical to writing an excellent Resume.

What are cover letters and are they really important to include with my Resume? Cover letters introduce you to a prospective employer and should always be sent with your Resume. So yes, they're important.
If you meet someone face-to-face, you can introduce yourself. You are your own cover letter. When you're applying for a position, you must have a way to let them know who you are and what you want--this is why you include the cover letter. Review the Info to Go: Cover Letters for examples.
