Cover Letters

The concept of a Cover Letter was new to me when I started looking for a job in Australia 4 years ago.

I understand how hard is to come up with something clever and well written when you are not sure how everything works or even when you are not that fluent in the language of the country you are hoping to stay in.


I still remember when my first application: the website asked me to upload not only my CV but also my cover letter. I clearly remember spending hours trying to come up with something that reflected my personality and my skills in a way that would convince the HR recruiter to give me an interview.

So, in line with this week’s video of Living in Melbourne, I want to share with you this cover letter template to be used in your application processes.
