Do I have to submit a cover letter every time I apply for a job with a CV?
It is always recommended that you do submit a cover letter with a job application, even if it does not state that a cover letter is required.
The letter is an ‘introduction’ of yourself, your career path, highlights, key skills, and experiences appropriate to the role. This allows you to indicate that you have noted your professional growth, undertaken research on the post, and understand how you fit in with the job role, specification, and the workplace you are applying to.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
Unless the job advert specifically specifies not to include a cover letter, we strongly suggest that you do include one.
The Careers Service can support this. Please see our employability and careers page for self-service resources, or if you would like to book an appointment please contact one of our Employability Team today on 01204 903 080 or on www.studenthub.bolton.ac.uk.
We are proud at the University of Bolton to have a dedicated employability team, to support your career ambitions.
We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
