The covering letter
This should be in conventional letter writing style and formatting. Make it as brief as possible and follow these paragraph outlines:
- Why are you writing? Detail the position using the exact wording and any reference numbers the company used. Also, someone recommended you give the name of this person here.
- Why should they choose to take your application to the next level? Give details on why you believe you are the best person for the job, but do not repeat information that has already been covered in the online application or in your CV/résumé: tailor this very specifically to the exact position.
- The closing paragraph: this should state how you will follow up. Even if telephone calls have been specifically prohibited, there should be no harm in explaining that you intend to send an email check that all materials have been received (emails are easier to respond to as they are not an immediate disturbance).
