Creating a Winning Cover Letter

Cover letters are a chance for you to sell yourself to an employer, but what should you include to have the greatest impact?

Set the scene

Introduce yourself to the employer. State what job you are applying for, why you are interested in applying for it, and where you heard about it.

Sell yourself

Highlight your qualifications and experience and match them to the job specification, remembering to include key words and examples. You’ll also want to show your knowledge of the company and demonstrate how you meet their values.

Sign it off

Reiterate a few of the key points that really sell your skillset as this will leave the employer with a positive impression of you. Don’t forget to finish the letter by thanking the employer for their time.
