Jul 26, 2020

Episode 81 of Live

Do you struggle to write a good covering letter? Are you sending the same covering letters over and over and getting no response? Wouldn’t it be great if you knew the magic formula to help get your letter in the top 20% of most applications?

In this episode of Live, we discuss the basic components of a good covering letter. What parts of a previous covering letter should you use? Should you spend ages researching the name of the person who will receive the application? How can you relate your letter to the vacancy? We discuss this and so much more. If you’re struggling with covering letters then work through the points we discuss and let us know if your applications start to improve.
