CVs, Cover Letters & Applications



Employers use CVs to decide whether to interview you for a job. Your CV needs to be relevant and tailored to the job you are applying for.

Cover letter

This is a statement of motivation. It may not always be required but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t write one – it can make your application stand out. Like a CV it needs to be tailored for the job you are applying for.

Application forms

Employers use this to assess your skills and motivations. They use your answers to decide whether you meet the criteria of the job and whether to call you for interview.
