Module 8 explains what a cover letter or email is, when you would use one and what information it should contain. You can see example cover letter and emails and practice writing your own.
Work your way through the Applying by letter or email Module, completing the activities. To get the most out of this module, we suggest that you complete the Planit Portfolio interactive tool. However, if you would prefer, you can complete the activity on paper first.
If you are a teacher or trainer, view the accompanying module notes, which include aims, outcomes and which career management skills and senior phase criteria the module meets.
If completing this as a paper-based exercise, print out Activity 1 Sample Letter as well as the content before delivering it.
