English Cover Letter

In most cases, the cover letter is your first contact with potential employers. Use this opportunity to make a strong and convincing impression, otherwise you may not get the attention you want.

Before writing, ask yourself why you are the right person for the job.

In your cover letter, emphasise why you are the ideal candidate for the position.

Use a nice letterhead for your cover letter. Check your word processor for templates on formal letters.
