Which is more important, your cover letter or your CV?

Although a majority of recruiters will read your CV first to assess your experience, once you’ve piqued their curiosity, your cover letter becomes the primary way for them to get a feel for you as a person and whether you will be a good cultural fit.

During this Devex Career Webinar, we will take a deep dive into how to write an effective cover letter and share tips to make the process a less daunting part of your search.

Cover Letters 101 will help you decide:
  • What to include in your cover letter
  • How to find a balance between CV highlights and personal content
  • How to structure your message
  • Effective tailoring and use of keywords 
  • Top cover letter do’s and don’ts

Participants will also get a special discount on Devex CV Writing after the event. 

Devex Career Webinars are open exclusively for our members with a Career Account. If you haven't upgraded yet, you can do so below as part of your registration for the event.
