CV AND COVER LETTER - TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Your cv and cover letter holds the key to reaching your next jobinterview.
Here we have collected a number of tips, tricks and examples so that you can write a good application and a targeted cv.
THREE ELEMENTS IN A COVER LETTER
First paragraph: Your motivation for sending an application to their company. Be specific and to the point.
Second paragraph: the professional match: write an example of what you’ve done in a previous position, what did it result in, and end off the paragraph by telling them what you are going to do when they hire you/how you will help them solve a problem.
Third paragraph: The personal match. How do you match with them as a person. Are you detail oriented, flexible?
Limit the word “I” to 5-10 times as the cover letter primarily is about the company and in the future – how you can contribute when you get the job. So give an example at the end of second paragraph.
