Why you should use our cover letter template

Our cover letter template makes it easier to structure and organise your cover letter. It helps you make sure that your cover letter contains all the important information employers are looking for. The template makes it simple to customise the cover letter to the job you’re applying for, so you can highlight relevant experience and career goals. Plus, since you never have to start from scratch each time you apply for a job, it can also save you time and effort.

What should you include in your cover letter?

When writing a cover letter, it’s important to include skills, experience and achievements that relate to the role. This allows the employer to get an understanding of your abilities and how they can help the company achieve its goals. Be sure to provide clear examples of your successes and how they connect to the job requirements.
You can also mention things that interest you about the role, such as particular tasks or challenges that excite you. Demonstrating your enthusiasm to take on the role will show the employer that you’re invested and eager to learn.

What to do when you finish writing your cover letter

Make sure to read over your cover letter for spelling and grammar. It’s a good idea to get a friend or family member to review it, too. When you’re done, save your cover letter as a PDF so it’s ready to apply with.
