COVERING LETTER TIPS

 

 

 

 


A good covering letter must always contain the following information:
  • Name of the sender
  • Addressee, place and date
  • Subject (with job reference number)
  • Your motivation for applying
  • Your experience and suitability for the role
  • Conclusion and signature
Enclose or attach a copy of your CV. Always state your motivation and suitability in a positive way.

HOW TO WRITE IT

Type it - Handwritten letters can be difficult to read or attach to emails and may imply you are not comfortable using technology.

Triple-check it - Many people stop reading a letter at the first mistake, so double check your letter carefully for language, spelling or syntax errors. Computer spell and grammar checks will catch most mistakes but is never fool-proof, so have someone else read through your letter to be absolutely sure.

Send it to the right person - Any job reference you receive through Mandeville will include details of the person the application should be sent. If not (i.e. if you are writing a speculative application) check with the company first, ensuring you check their spelling of the person's name and their correct job title.
