Hello,

I came across an application form asking for a cover letter and career objective. What is the distinct difference? I have always put in some career objective in the cover letter and I am not sure how to answer this time so I won't be repeating the same thing. Both question are give 4000 characters each which around 600 words! I just found out the company today and its closing date is tomorrow! Help please!
