Cover Letter Basics

At its most basic level a cover letter is a cover letter; no more, no less.

So just beware.

This may sound like a really obvious statement, but you would be surprised at just how many people overcomplicate the cover letter and turn it into something that isn’t; be it a CV, an essay, personal statement, an autobiography etc…

The key word is ‘letter’, if your cover letter doesn’t look like a letter, then this is a sure sign that something is amiss.
