Creating a Catchy Cover Letter

How to write a convincing and catchy cover letter to an agency:

The purpose of a cover letter is to give a recruitment agency an overview of who you are. Present your personal information in plain language. Your objective is to convince the agency that your skills, knowledge and background are useful. Here are some tips to help you draft a convincing cover letter.

Keep to one page. Most cover letters contain the following information:

  • A brief introduction including your career objective.
  • A short round up of your skills, education, and relevant background information.
  • Briefly explain why you want the job and why you think you would be the best candidate.
  • In closing, state your contact information and don’t forget to include your e-mail address.
  • Feel free to add your salary indication and notice period. This information is not obligatory.

Details of your nationality and date of birth would be appreciated but are not obligatory.
