You’ve written a perfect CV; it’s accurate and up to date, and gives our recruiters an insight into you, your interests, qualifications and professional interests.
Now on to the cover letter. Should you send one, or not? Our recruitment team agree sending a cover letter is almost always the best decision, even if the job application doesn’t ask for one. Plus, if they don’t need a cover letter, sending one will demonstrate you’re a motivated candidate. So ultimately, you can’t go wrong!
Your cover letter is your opportunity to help us see if your skills and experience match what we seek. More importantly, a cover letter allows you to clearly tell us why you’re the best candidate for the job.
After you have written your cover letter – proofread it. And then proofread again. A cover letter with grammatical errors and spelling mistakes can lead to your application being rejected. Make sure to edit your cover letter so it’s only one-page long.
