Keeping it Brief

A customised, one page cover letter should go with each CV you send out. Following the standard convention, the letter should consist of three paragraphs:
State the reason for your application
Sell yourself by linking your strengths and skills to the job
Request an interview or meeting
Preferably, typed / printed on white A4. If this isn’t possible, hand write it (as neatly as possible).
Address it specifically by name, and sign it ‘Yours Sincerely’.
Keep it brief.
Remember, a good cover letter increases the likelihood of getting an interview.
Good luck.
As always, let me know how it goes.
