Hello Richard,

Thanks for your question. A very easy one to answer. Simply click on the Templates button on the left of this message, and download the Computer Programmer template and fill it in with your details.

This is an outstanding template (even if I say so myself Laughing ) Whenever I send a CV in this format to one of my clients, I get an excellent response.

As for covering letters, Richard, we are hesitant to give you a template for one. If we do host a covering letter here, you will find that most candidates will simply be lazy and use it without customizing it. What good would that do? A covering letter needs to be personally written to the person it is sent to. It needs to be specifically targeted to that job and company. It should highlight exactly why you feel you are suitable or deserving of that job.

Good luck Richard.

Kind regards

Lloyd

Hello Eva

Have you tried using one of the templates that are located under the Templates button on the left <--- of this message. (If you don't see the templates button, follow this link.... www.jobfishing.co.za).

You will find some excellent, free templates there. If you are still stuck after that, then let me know.
