Talk to the recruiter to find out why they did that. Maybe they thought that
the cover letter was complimentary for the particular situation. If the don't
come up with a good answer, write it off as having gotten involved with a
stupid recruiter, and move on. Theee are lots more jobs and lots more
recruiters out there.

What CAN you do?

I've been reading the thread on resumes and noticed that most have said to
include a cover letter. In this day an age a lot of things are done over
the Internet and through recruiters.

Well I have a question, what if you are forwarding your resume to a
recruiter and you sent a cover letter describing why they should find you a
job, and they turn around and forward it to their client?

This is not the cover letter you wanted the client to receive, it was meant
strictly for the recruiter, what do you do then?
