Why do you need to write a covering letter?

Posted on: 27th Nov 2015 by: Ann Pettengell


A covering letter is the first page of your application, not an attachment to your CV.  It's a chance for you to demonstrate your communication skills and show more of your personal side than a bullet-pointed CV can.

Keep your letter clear and to the point and limit to one page only.  Relate your skills to the job and try to answer the question of 'Why should I invite you for interview?'  Where possible, address it personally to the hirer and remember that writing "Please find enclosed my CV" is not a covering letter.
