How to make a good cover letter?

When applying for a job you will need more than just a good Curriculum Vitae: you will often need to show, for example, your language proficiency or other skills. A necessary document in your job application is also the cover letter.

You can use the Europass documents to show your skills, training and competency by compiling them into your European Skills Passport. The Europass now also includes a tool to help you prepare a cover letter for your job application.

You can find the tool from the left marginal of the Europass-CV -tool.

The new Europass tool will help you compile a cover letter for your job application.
