Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about our Cover Letter Templates

What is a Cover Letter?

A Cover Letter is a one-page document you send with your CV when applying for jobs. Unlike a CV, which is filled with factual bullet points, the cover letter acts more as a personal statement to sell your candidacy to the hiring manager.

Cover letters are sometimes called a “letter of motivation”. As the name suggests, the letter should describe your personal motivations for applying to the job. This can include anecdotal reasons for your interest in the role as well as long term career aspirations.

When used correctly, the cover letter can be a great tool to win over the hiring manager with your personality and enthusiasm.

For more examples on how to write a great cover letter, read our Ultimate Cover Letter Guide for 2021.

How to Write a Cover Letter?

A good cover letter is structured into the following paragraphs:

  • Introductory Paragraph: Include salutations and the role you’re applying for
  • Personal Background: A short paragraph introducing yourself together with a brief professional background
  • Why You?: The main body of the cover letter. Talk about why you’re the best candidate for the job. Include research you’ve done on the company as well as any soft skills you have which aren’t visible in your CV
  • Thank You and Closing: Thank the reader for their attention and end the letter

Write in a formal tone that communicates your professionalism while still demonstrating your enthusiasm for the role. Learn how you can do this here.

What Sections Should I Include in a Cover Letter?

Your Cover Letter should have 3 main sections:

  1. Header Section (Introductory Paragraph)
  2. Body (Personal Background and Why You?)
  3. Closing Section with a Call to Action

Remember – your Cover Letter isn’t an essay!

It’s a targeted letter that speaks directly to the Hiring Manager.

Keep it concise, tailored and relevant for your reader. We go into extensive detail on what you should focus on for each section in our Ultimate Cover Letter Guide for 2021.

How Long Should My Cover Letter Be?

Your Cover Letter should be no more than one page in length.

Be succinct and sell yourself in the cover letter.

Once you’ve captured their attention, use your Resume to go into more detail about your career history and Significant Achievements acquired throughout your career.

  • How Long Does The Process Take?

    You’ll receive a 1st Draft within 3 working days of your phone interview. If you need a CV urgently, you can order our express delivery option (subject to availability). You’ll then receive the 1st Draft within 1 working day of the phone interview.

    You’ll receive a short email requesting your current resume documents, and answers to a few basic background questions. One of our Resume Writing Consultants, specialised in your field, will then email you to schedule a phone interview. If you’re overseas, we’ll make an international call to a number of your choosing.

  • Who Will Be Writing My Resume?

    A Resume Writer specialised in your field will be assigned to your case. Your Writer will have a deep understanding of your industry, and will be able to identify key strengths to highlight and job search strategies to follow.
