Dear Theo - applying for an international job as a student

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by daisyj, Feb 22, 2011.

  1. Dear Theo,

    I have returned from an international placement in Denmark and would like to apply for a job in Sweden. I am currently on a PGCE but have been in contact to check they would accept me, they replied yes.

    They are asking for a CV and cover letter.

    CV is all updated with Denmark placement but I'm wondering with the cover letter if you think I should include any particular details which would help to benefit my position?

    Many thanks, Daisy

    The same principles apply as for any job application: from the details see what they are looking for, and show how you meet their needs.
    The letter should be specific to that particular job, not a general one that could do for anything.
    Best of luck!
