Cover letter

Stand out from the crowd

Cover letter

In your cover letter you describe what your motivation is for the job you are applying for. It also supports the more factual cv with examples of relevant former experiences. You want the recruiter to invite you for an interview.

Keep it short, concrete and authentic and make sure you connect your capabilities and ambitions with what the employer is looking for.
