At the start of your career you might not have much actual work experience. It can be a challenge to convince an employer to take a chance on you. Your cover letter is your opportunity to show employer what makes you different and to emphasise your motivation for starting your career with them.
It’s time to move on from your current job. Your cover letter should explain why you are interested in this new position and why you’d like to work for this new company. It’s also an opportunity to summarise your strengths, skills and experience and explain how you can be an asset to the organisation.
