Cover Letter for Careers Adviser / Careers Advisor
Application for a Careers Adviser
I have recently seen your advert in (where and when) for a Careers Adviser and I would like to submit my CV in application.
I have had previous experience in a private recruitment capacity whereby I have been interviewing and advising candidates about roles in which they could apply for, what they are looking to do and matching it against their skills and previous experiences.
I feel that I am an excellent listener and communicator and have dealt with many different people with different skills, abilities and positions. I pride myself on getting to know candidates as I feel that this best helps them into a career or job role.
I have provided advice on their CV’s and covering letters, how to complete application forms, given interview advice and guidance and made follow up plans for them to keep to and keep track of their applications.
I am a confident person who enjoys putting every effort into their roles and I like working with people and making a difference to their lives by helping them.
I have enclosed my CV which shows my experiences in detail but should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
