Good for you! You’re applying for a new job. Even in this modern day and age, when applying for a job, everyone still advises that you should write a job cover  letter to stand out from the crowd. And that covering letter needs to be tailored to the job applying for. It’s no good writing a stock job cover letter – it will be spotted and your job application may quickly end up being in the reject pile. So read on to make sure that you write a good job cover letter that helps you get to the interview stage!
