Written applications should include a cover letter, which is your opportunity to express your unique claims to the role or company. When employers only request a resume, your email should serve as a cover letter.
To make a good impression, include the following sections:
- your reason for writing
- your interest in and knowledge of the organisation
- relevant skills and experience in relation to the position or needs of the organisation
- references to any documents you have enclosed
- enthusiasm! Express a willingness for an interview
