Cover Letter

Another way to find a new job is to make speculative applications to employers in your field.

Applying speculatively can be frustrating, with a relatively low response rate, but if you do find an employer with a vacancy there will usually be less competition.

When you are making a speculative application you should always write to a named person if possible - people take more notice of letters addressed to them rather than letters which say 'Dear Sir/Madam'. So do not address the letter to the Personnel Manager or Human Resources Manager; ring up the company (if you do not know their number try Directory ) and find out the name of the person and their correct job title.
