The Cover Letter enhances and introduces the main document – your CV. It should not be sent as a stand-alone document. Employers are looking for a well-written, informative cover letter that demonstrates your attention to detail and how well suited you are to the role, which in-turn entices them to read your CV.
Using appropriate grammar and correct spelling tells the reader that you have invested the time and energy to make a positive impression. Typos and poor formatting in your cover letter on the other hand, signal that you have failed to take the time to make a good impression. Employers rightly regard the cover letter as their best example of the applicant’s ability to express thoughts in writing. This is because the most applicant’s cover letters aren’t reviewed whereas many people get multiple reviews of their CV.
