Sending to employers

Sometimes you will be asked to send in a CV to apply for a job.

You could send a CV to an employer in case they have jobs that they need to fill in the future. This is called sending it “on spec”.

If you send a CV to an employer you need to include a letter with it. This is called a covering letter

A covering letter needs to explain why you are sending the CV.

The letter also needs to be:

  • Brief and clear
  • Clean
  • Neat with no spelling mistakes
