Juice’s top tips for writing a cover letter…

Your CV is your first opportunity to shine and stand out from the crowd. A cover letter should be included whenever you send a copy of your CV to an employer or Recruitment Consultant.

This enables you to target your CV and adds a personal touch.

A cover letter compliments your CV, draws attention to the important sections and highlights relevant experience.

1. Firstly, explain where you saw the advert and the position you are applying for.

2. Follow on by explaining why you want the job and why you feel you are suitable. Most of this information will already be included in your CV, and remember the letter should complement the CV, not reiterate it.

3. Highlight important points detailed in your CV, but try not to use the same phrases.

4. Personalise your letter by mentioning the company and show that you have researched them.

5. Try to include why you would like to work for that particular organisation.

6. Finish the letter by looking to the future and explain that you look forward to hearing from them!
