Brilliant Cover Letters is the definitive book on cover letters, authored by James Innes, the Founder and Managing Director of The CV Centre – the UK’s leading CV consultancy – responsible for writing many tens of thousands of cover letters annually.  The advice given is tried, tested and proven on a daily basis within The CV Centre.
Brilliant Cover Letter includes free bonuses such as cover letter templates available for download and immediate use – and suitable for pretty much all purposes, from graduates to executives, and including templates for ‘special cases’, e.g. legal, medical, IT, teaching, etc.  There’s also a special offer for The CV Centre’s services.
A key feature of the book – nothing quite like it exists in competing titles – is a chapter covering the 15 most common cover letter mistakes and how to avoid them (based on extensive statistical analysis The CV Centre has undertaken of many thousands of cover letters).  Only a tiny percentage of cover letters manage to avoid all these mistakes and most are victim to several.  Avoiding these mistakes makes all the difference to whether your application ends up in the ‘yes’ pile or the ‘no’ pile – also known as the bin!
