Writing a cover letter for a career change

When making a career change, it is essential to have a cover letter.

Write to the hiring manager demonstrating why you are a good fit for the role, despite your lack of experience.

A persuasive, cover letter will convince the employer that your work experience is a strength, not a disadvantage. Make sure you are clear on your goals and reasons for switching careers, and that you are in a position for a successful career change.

In your letter communicate, why you are qualified, highlight your transferrable skills and express your passion for the company.
