Hello Reader. It looks like the Summer is nearly over doesn’t it? Goodbye Summer! And as Autumn closes his papery hand around us I think we should take a look at covering letters. Why the hell not?
Over the next few days I’m going to be sharing with you a few different approaches to the cover letter. One a day, lets say.
Here’s today’s: I read on the Guardian Careers website only yesterday that a good covering letter should be composed as if it were a love letter where you, the applicant, are pleading to hold the employers hand or kiss him on the lips or ask him tenderly to pull down his trousers (substitute ‘her’ as appropriate). A nice idea I thought. One with enviable legs.
On to COVERING LETTERS 2 ?
