Great cover letters open doors

When you’re applying or looking for work, a cover letter is a brief letter to accompany your CV or application. It’s always a great idea to include one (unless you’re specifically requested not to).

If your CV / application is the main course, then the cover letter is the appetiser.

It allows potential employers to see a glimpse of you. Shows that you recognise the skills and attributes you need to do the job and confirms that you have them.

A great cover letter could ensure that prospective employers read your resume and puts you in the interview pile.

Youth Central have put together a “How to write a Cover Letter” document. It’s well worth a read.

You can find free cover letter templates online, in Word, and Youth Central have a selection listed in the resource we linked above.
