Cover letters and emails?!

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by PETERPIPER, Mar 29, 2011.

  1. I would attach the covering letter (if it's a statement of application type letter) as a word doc so that they can print it off easily, and just have a brief email directing them to the attachments. However, if the job app includes your statement of application in it already, then you don't need a detailed covering letter, as you'll just be doubling up. I'm sure Theo can clarify this, but this is what I've always been told.

    I've made a few applications by email recently, and I've put my supporting statement and exec summary as a separate word document. In the body of the email I say "please find attached my application form, supporting statement and executive summary". I have had no problems with this so far.

    I'd put, and indeed did put, the covering letter as the email. You can hardly just leave it blank. I think I wrote something like 'Dear............ I have great pleasure in applying for the above post and please find attached my application and my executive summary outlining how I meet the person specification. Yours sincerely....'

    Then the form (got at great personal hassle!) and exec summary were attachments.

    Got me the interview!
