Cover letter


Cover letter is very important part of your resume. It is a message to the company why they should pick you/invite you for an interview, what it is you can offer. Make sure you accentuate your professional strong points


  • First paragraph should attract attention and should state the reason why we send the letter (what offer we respond to, where we found out about the position)
  • Next paragraph should describe your last experience and emphasize your experience and knowledge fitting for position you are responding to
  • Last paragraph should contain additional info you’d like to mention and also, add sentence or two saying you’d like to see them for a personal interview

Advice and tips:

  • Write an original cover letter for every position you are responding to and fit it to the particular company and position
  • Text should be clear and simple, ideally half of A4 page, no one got time to read long letters
  • Watch for typos, right title of the position (the government employment office changes titles according to their list but it is not usually the correct title)
