Step 3 – prepare your CV and covering letter

  • Getting your CV right is a key part of the job application. Many employers will ask for a CV so it’s best to prepare one early.
  • Some recruiters will ask for a covering letter for job applications. Even if they don’t, it’s good practice to provide one telling the employer why you are the right fit for the role.
