Second draft


When you have finished the body of the letter (motivation - argumentation - extra assets), add an introduction and a conclusion. Avoid standard formulations.

Also add the necessary administrative elements (sender, recipient, etc. )


Reread your letter for style.

  • Is it fluent, brief and to the point?
  • Is it positive and confident without being arrogant?
  • Is it personal without trying to be too original?


  • Is your letter not too self-centred?
  • Does it relate to the original ad?
  • Does your letter highlight what you might offer to an employer?

Adjust your letter if necessary.
