Cover Letter : Is it important ?

Question : Is a cover letter important when applying for overseas jobs? 

APMC : A cover letter can be all-important as it is the first document a busy recruitment team sees. If it does not fit the bill, your C.V. will see the inside of a bin before a page is even turned.

A cover letter provides the first opportunity to screen and ensure that your skills, experience and qualifications match what the company is looking for.

  • Follow company instructions carefully when you submit your cover letter. Many companies will tell you exactly how they want the application and what they want to see in the cover letter so make sure the details are there as requested.
  • Make sure you target the cover letter to the position and company. Just like your C.V., do not use a blanket letter for every overseas jobs you apply for.
  • Check, check and double check for spelling and grammar errors. Check again. Most recruiters will discard your application if your cover letter (or C.V. for that matter) has errors in it.
  • Provide a succinct overview of the skills and experience you have, matching it carefully to the overseas jobs description.
  • Write e-mail cover letters as meticulously as you would a standard letter.
