Another study on employer preference suggests that 56% want applicants to attach a cover letter to the resume.

A CareerBuilder study found that 49% of HR managers consider a covering letter the second best thing to give your resume a boost (number one being customizing your resume.)
Even if recruiters don’t read cover letters, they might want to pass them to the hiring manager or employer. If the company is small, employers read cover letters to vet their candidates. The fewer the applications, the easier it is to focus on each candidate.
So if you're wondering whether you should include a cover letter, the answer is yes. You should include a cover letter even if it isn't required.
