Speculative Cover Letter Example
Below, in the speculative cover letter example you will see how to create an interview-grabbing letter for a speculative job application when you have identified an employer that you want to work for, but don't know whether they have any particular job vacancies that you would be suitable for.
This page focuses on the example itself, but if you want more detailed advice, then please see our article on how to write a speculative cover letter.
Should you want to improve your CV or cover letter, then please take a look at our professional CV services to see how our experts can ensure that employers take more notice of your applications.
How to Use the Speculative Cover Letter Example
You can use our speculative cover letter as your template for your own covering letter. You must completely customise your own letter so that it meets the needs of the employer that you are sending it to, which means that you need to carefully research the employer before writing your letter.
Below the speculative cover letter example, you will find some important notes that will help you to write your own letter. You might also want to have a look at our cover letter example for an advertised job vacancy and then compare both letters to see the differences and the similarities.
Important Points to Note From the Speculative Cover Letter Example
When you read the above speculative cover letter example, you may have noted how Jackie has completely customised the letter for the particular employer that she was approaching. The better the fit, the more likely the employer is to want to interview you.
Make sure you do your own research about the employers you want to approach. Try and find out as much as you can, as this will allow you to create a more tailored letter.
In the speculative cover letter example above, Jackie had found out a lot of relevant information from the employer's own website and then contacting them through Facebook.
We always recommend you find out the name of the person to send your letter to. If you don't know how to address your letter, see our how to start a cover letter article.
