First, find a company for whom you would like to work. Write a compelling covering letter describing why you are good for them, pointing the receiver to the enclosed CV for further information. Don’t seal the A4 envelope and don’t enclose a CV. They’ll think the CV fell out in the mail. Wait for the phone to ring, speak to the hiring manager personally, engage them in a conversation, and sell yourself shamelessly.
Compliments of Matt Foster, Managing Director, CVO Group
- use high quality stationary
- Make sure the letter fits very snugly in the envelope so it doesn’t really fall out.
- Make sure your phone number is on the covering letter.
