Cover Letter Advice

Some people make the mistake of treating their cover letter like a CV, or an essay. It is neither. A cover letter is a cover letter, and should be short, pertinent, and actually complement the CV rather than just copy or be a substitute for it.

Another mistake people make with cover letters is that they underestimate the importance of them. A good cover letter can often be the deciding factor as to whether your CV gets read or not. There is no point in paying good money for a professional CV writer to write your CV if you are going to accompany it with a DIY cover letter. When you apply to jobs you need the complete package; i.e. a first class CV and a top-quality cover letter.

Cover Letter Writing

When you write your cover letter you need to remember that employers are busy people, and that the best cover letters say more but with less words. It's actually quite a delicate balancing act, you need to say enough to entice the employer into reading your CV, but you need to be careful not to overdo it, because if you do it can be a deterrent.
