  Writing a Strong Cover Letter         

What is a cover letter ?

A cover letter is a brief one page letter sent along with the resume to potential employers. The purpose of the cover letter is to present yourself to potential employers and to let them know what position you are interested in and why you'd be a good fit for their company.

What to Include in Your Job Covering Letter ?

Cover Letter Tips

If you are sending your CV to a prospective employer by post or fax, it is essential that you send it with a covering letter.
