Glamour (South Africa) - - Ed's Letter -

The first stage of a job in­ter­view is not the one into the of­fice of your prospec­tive em­ployer. It’s the cover let­ter at­tached to your CV. So pol­ish it like crazy and don’t dash your own dreams with SMS lan­guage (no, i can’t meet u), poor syn­tax (es­pe­cially if you de­scribe your­self as ‘de­tail-ori­ented’) and off­hand salu­ta­tions (‘Hi there’, ‘Hey’, or no salu­ta­tion at all). Done that? Now let your mar­vel­lous and mem­o­rable per­son­al­ity shine through!
