Last week, I posted about writing a creative industries cover letter. Now Clearly Creative CVs has received another 5 Star review  which specifically mentions the covering letters section:

Very useful and good read for anyone new trying to get into the industry. The book contains great tips in CV writing and how to compose a well thought out cover letter. I honestly only started hearing back from employers after using the tips in this book and I am now thankfully employed. Definitely a good purchase and if you feel at a loss when trying to get into the industry this will serve as a good stepping stone.

Reviews like this are always satisfying to read. Someone’s gained employment after changing how they approach finding work after reading my book. There’s a whole chapter devoted to covering letters, as there’s an art to writing them.

Applicants mistakenly put the content from their Personal Introduction in to the cover letter. Your covering letter should demonstrate how you’ve interpreted what the employer needs, and how you fulfil them.
