Cover letters

A well written cover letter is the cornerstone of any job application and can often be more challenging than constructing the CV itself. In the cover letter you must convince a prospective employer why they should consider hiring you, while also clearly and concisely detailing your experience, without reproducing your CV.

How to write a good cover letter

A good cover letter can greatly improve your chances of landing an interview. To do this you need to show what makes you the standout candidate for the job.
