The JobLab Cover Note

Did you notice that when you hit “Apply” this popped up?








Here at JobLab we want to take the stress out of applying and securing your dream role. However, this can’t come at the expense of you blending in with the crowd. That’s why we’ve introduced the cover note as a short, snappy way to get hold of employers’ attention. It should be a short paragraph or set of bullet points summarising why you are interested in the role and what experiences and strengths you have that match what they are looking for.
