Re: Cover Letter

check these 2 sites
http://www.youthcentral.vic.gov.au/j...a-cover-letter
http://www.techrepublic.com/article/...etter/5029703/

general guidelines are
paragraph one: brief introduction of yourself with strengths
paragraph two: how your past can benefit the employer (similar roles you did)
paragraph three: any extra bits (i included studying etc)
closing paragraph with emphasis on your interest in the company.

Re: Cover Letter

Explain why you're interested in the position, what you can bring to the job/company, bit about you as a person.. but Do not repeat your CV in your cover letter.
