cover letterA good cover letter is vital to getting a job. It is your introduction to a potential employer – the written equivalent, if you like, of a confident handshake and a friendly smile. An impressive CV is of course a help, but a good covering letter can create an immediate favourable impression with an enthusiastic tone. It points out how the information on your CV is relevant to the job and it can highlight the essential skills, experience and personal qualities that you bring.
