What is a speculative cover letter?
A speculative cover letter is sent alongside your CV when you apply to a company that isn’t currently advertising for staff. Rather than being written with a particular position in mind, they’re usually more tailored to the company – selling your skills, experience and potential should any potential vacancies arise.
How do you start a follow up email?
Openers you might want to try include:I just wanted to follow up on the email I sent last [day of the week email was sent] about [subject of email].I just wanted to follow up to see what you thought about [subject of email].I hope this doesn’t sound weird, but I saw that you read my previous email.
Is it better to apply online or in person for a job?
The simple rule is if you’re looking for a job where you’re dealing directly with a customer offering assistance — you should apply in person. If you’re looking for a job where everyone has a computer or at the least is expected to check e-mail — it is okay to stick to all online activity.
