My Cover Letter & CV TeX Template

TeX has clear advantages as a tool to format and produce documents, so why not use it with your CV? I have created a simple template using the awesome moderncv class that incorporates the Cover Letter in the first page as well.

The idea is to have the Cover Letter as the “cover” of your CV, so it doesn’t get lost during the hiring process and everyone involved in it will get to read it. I think the Cover Letter is a crucial element for the job seeker, you should show there your motivation, justify all the job criteria you meet and explain your conditions (like availability).

If you want to know how to write a good Cover Letter head to this blog post, it has very good advice. Feel free to modify the template and make it yours.
