While your CV sets out the skills you have for the post we would advise including a covering letter which should:-
demonstrate to the employer your interest in and knowledge of the company;
highlight particular parts of your CV that are your unique selling points;
explain any personal circumstances or anomalies in your application.
Well-written covering letters are also particularly effective for speculative applications outside a recruitment cycle.
Setting out your covering letter
Address your letter to a named individual. If you are not sure who the best person to contact is, telephone the company and ask.
Keep your letter to one side of A4.
Use a formal business template, showing both your address and the name and address of the recipient.
Use 'Yours sincerely' to sign off. Only use 'Yours faithfully' if you have addressed the letter 'Dear Sir/Madam'.
Paragraph one: introduction
Why are you writing? 'I am writing in response to your job advertisement in the Daily News for the position of trainee marketing assistant'.
