Your cover letter is your first opportunity to shine and highlight your personal attributes, key skills, experience, and passion for the role you are applying for.
A cover letter is generally a one-page document that compliments your resume by providing a snapshot of your standout skills, attributes, and experience relevant to the job advertisement.
It’s usually read before your resume and is therefore a vital part of the job application.
It’s a way of introducing yourself and summarising who you are, where you’ve come from and why you’re a good fit for the job.
Our “Kick-Start your Career” Series has more information available about all aspects of career planning and job preparation.
You can watch our recorded presentation “Applications that Get Noticed” for more specific tips and detailed information about creating a winning cover letter that will get noticed by employers.
