Cover Letter Of Application
Do not just repeat what you have already put in your resume/CV
You need to engage your reader and target the position
The letter of application must be tailored to the specific position you are applying for
What is all important
Your letter must address the accountabilities of the role or the selection criteria for the position, showing
how your skills and experience align with the position advertised. Nominating your achievements and/or results against each identified accountability or selection criteria, using statistics if you can, for example, “resulting in an increase in sales by 15%”, is the way to show your highlighted career achievements
This also shows what value you can bring to the role for which you are applying.
Take Time to
Take time to construct your letter, demonstrate your skills using action verbs. Using the word “assisted”, tells your reader nothing about your level of participation. How does your reader know HOW involved you were and what you learnt and achieved? If you worked with a team of people? Or were you the Team Leader or Project Leader?
Tailor your letter to each position you apply for and the main message is, DO NOT use the same letter for all positions you apply for, you are missing an opportunity to sell yourself and show why your skills and
experience are the perfect ‘fit’ with the job and company you are targeting.

The process starts with our in-depth intake interview via phone so we can learn more about your goals and challenges. The interview typically lasts 50-70 minutes, during which we will discuss your current situation, target opportunities, and background in depth, and set our strategy for moving forward.
Turnaround time for the initial documents is typically 5-7 business days following the initial intake discussion. All documents are delivered in PDF and editable Word documents. Together we will go through the revisions process to ensure all content is accurate and optimized. If you purchased a LinkedIn profile, we will deliver a mockup of the profile and upon completion of revisions, update the live content.
