NEVER SEND A CV WITHOUT A COVER LETTER!
A well written Cover letter is your chance to introduce yourself with effect briefly showcasing your experience, qualifications, and employment availability with the goal of attracting the employer to go through your CV application.
Doing your homework on the organisation you’re applying to is key to attracting that all important interview invitation. We do our research on the organisation including their offering, history, and culture.
Personalizing your cover letter to the job specifications and company will impress your employer and show your keen interest in the position you are applying for within the company.
Although your CV will contain your previous work experience and education, having an effective well written cover letter tailored to the job and organisation will go a long way to securing all important interviews. Plus, it’s a great way to give the prospected employer a feel for you as an individual, your personality and to make you stand out from the sea of other applicants.
