How to write a covering letter/email:
This should be a short statement to summarise your CV and highlight why you are the right candidate for the job. See below what Recruitment Avenue recommend writing in your covering letter/email.
Always remember to tailor to each and every position you apply for.
Recruitment Avenue cover letter/email example:
Dear Name (or Sir/Madam as appropriate),
Opening Paragraph: Identify yourself; state what position you are applying for and where the vacancy was advertised.
Second Paragraph: Cover: why you’re interested in the role and why the company appeals to you. Mention your academic background, relevant qualifications and related work experience.
Third Paragraph: Mention that you have enclosed your CV/completed application form – and cover any additional points of relevance.
Finally: Close with the following: your availability to interview and a positive final sentence to encourage a positive response.
