The covering letter and CV is the total package – your golden opportunity to sell yourself to employers. They are going to be reading your covering letter before your CV so it’s important that it makes an impact. Covering letters that create a good first impression are well constructed, don’t contain any spelling mistakes or bad grammar, and support what you are saying in your CV.
A good letter makes an employer sit up, take notice and want to read your CV. It will have more of an impact if it shows the employer that you have done your research. This means showing you know what the job involves and what they are looking for in an employee. Your letter will need to convince an employer that you want the job and that you’re the best person for it.
