Career Advice

Former recruitment agency experts answer employment questions, candidly suggesting how to negotiate your salary, find a really good job, handle phone interviews, and more.

Sage advice like this is priceless.

What is the purpose of a covering letter?

Covering letters are used to further sell yourself to the recruiter, and to explain why you want the job.

How should I format the letter? Is there a standard template I should follow?

The covering letter is as important as the resume itself. Try to think of these two documents as a package. Make the letter one that is the employer wants to read.

Keep it concise and to the point. Explain why you want to work for this particular employer.

Some more tips for writing covering letters.

  1. Research the company before making your letter.
  2. Have someone check it before you send it.
  3. Summarize the top couple specific reasons why you are a good candidate for the job.
