Ask Me Anything About Job Search

I am doing another experiment with new technology where I am doing an AMA and answering several questions:

Do recruiters read cover letters?

What is the typical word count for a good cover letter?

How do you efficiently reach out to individuals in charge of reviewing online job applications, especially in situations where the recruiter or HR personnel never replies to phone calls or emails?

How does a recruitment consultant focus on helping candidates find jobs? Most are focused on assisting companies find the right candidate. As a recruitment consultant, how can one assist a job seeker find his/her dream job?

How is it legal to recruit on the basis of gender for technical jobs such as copyediting or patenting
