Dear Theo (and others) letter of application query

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Butterflychic, Mar 29, 2012.

  1. Hi there,
    Filling in applications so much does make you question the little things, so sorry if this is mundane!
    The application form requests "a cover letter of no more than 2 pages in support of your application". I'm thinking they mean letter of applicatiosn. How do I address this? is it my address on the right, the date, the Heads address on the left then my letter? Can I miss my address out as it's already on the form?

    Thanks :)

    This is actually the first, the very first, FAQ in the FAQs file inside the Welcome thread . . .
    So when you raed that . . . you'll know the answer to most of your questions.
    I would just minimise the Head's bit, not yours:

    They know where they are , , , you needn't put the rest in if short of space.
    But make sure that you aren'y wasting space with waffle . . .
