Cover Letter:
Tips for Writing it.
Maria Fernandez Alonso
Before Writing
 When you read the add, you must
make sure that you have understood
what the employer is looking for, and
then try to project that image without
being dishonest.
 While reading the add, select the key
words that you may use later for
writing your application letter.
 Choose the appropriate structure and
the required degree of formality:
business like.

Cover Letter: Structure
1. Inform about the position you are
going to apply. For example:
“Marketing Assistant.”
2. Don’t forget the reference number.
3. Use expressions such as Dear Sir,
Dear Madam or the name of the person
who is in charge of the recruitment
process if you know it.
4. In your closings think about whether
you know the recipient’s name.
Do you remember when to use
Yours Sincerely and Yours
Faithfully???
Yours sincerely Yours faithfully
When you know the name of the
recipient…
It is used when the recipient is
addressed by name, example:
“Dear Mr Smith”
Always, yours sincerely
If you don’t know the name of the
recipient…
It is used when the recipient is not
addressed by name, example:
“Dear Sir / Madam”
Always, yours faithfully

Attention to these concepts
 The most common words for CV are
Curriculum Vitae or Resume
 To whom it may concern
This expression is used for an open
testimonial letter written by
someone who knows for describing
your qualities.
 A reference letter is written directly
to a specific employer by someone
who knows you to express how
suitable you can be for a particular
job.
