Alternative version

Our alternative version removes the peach background. We change the fill colour of the orange box and its border to white, and expand it to take a photo. We also remove the borders from the top and bottom, and change the lower headings to white. The end result is a very fresh and clean template that retain the dots and icons, whilst having modern appeal. When rating this template, please do let us know what you think of each version. We’d always love to hear how we can improve!

Should I write a cover letter?

The amount of people that attach cover letters with their CVs is very low. Typically the employer is expecting to receive a two page CV and nothing more. Also, not every employer reads a cover letter and may skip straight to the CV.

So is there really any point to writing a cover letter?

We do firmly believe that under the right circumstances you can make a positive impact with a cover letter. With so many candidates opting not to write one, you can create a unique and memorable application.

If you’re still not convinced here’s a little bit of advice to help you decide…

Does an employer want to read a cover letter?

Every hiring manager is different, and for every employer that loves to see a cover letter you may find another that ignores them. But that doesn’t mean to say you shouldn’t write one. It’s extremely unlikely that it will go against you – unless you write a bad one of course!

So whether or not an employer wants to read one is something you are probably not going to know. However, you could consider contacting them directly to find out. A quick phone call is all it will take to see if they value the covering letter or not.

If you don’t want to contact them or don’t manage to get in touch, then our advice would be to write one anyway. As long as you write a professional cover letter which is tailored to the role and the company, you will make a positive impact.

It’s also worth noting that some employers like to see cover letters even if they skip that part, or give them a quick skim read. They acknowledge the fact that the candidate has taken the time to write one which demonstrates initiative.

We have some fantastic guides on how to write a cover letter. Take a look – Top tips on how to write the perfect cover letter for your CV.

Will a cover letter give me an advantage?

Again, this really does depend on how important the employer deems the cover letter to be. However, when done correctly and professionally, your cover letter will more often than not add a lot of value to your CV. It shows you are willing to put in the extra effort that’s required to gain an interview and showcase your skills.

Don’t forget, a cover letter can also directly address the manager and allow you the chance to explain in more detail why you feel you’re the best person for the job. It can also show how passionate you are about the company and the role.

A well written covering letter could just be the icing on the cake you need to gain that all important interview!
