Applying for a graduate trainee programme can be very intimidating considering that most candidates have no experience whatsoever. Therefore, most people will have a problem figuring out what to include in their PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter.

Melody Mwendwa a professional CV writing expert at Corporate Staffing Services says that due to your limited experience when applying for the graduate trainee position, your PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter should emphasise more on your academic qualifications, internships and any extra training you have had.

What to consider when writing PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter

1. Content

The first two paragraphs of your PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter should describe you. Give the employer information on your qualifications for the position.

The following paragraph should show why you are interested in working for the organisation and position.

2. Grammatical Errors

Make sure you go through you cover letter at least 3 times before sending it. This will help you get rid of any grammatical mistakes.

You will immediately be disqualified for the position if your cover letter contains any grammatical errors because this shows that you are careless and no one wants to hire a careless individual.

3. Avoid Clichés

Avoid using statements and phrases that have been overused in the past. This will show that you are not creative, not a very good quality in a person whose job description requires creativity. Try as much as possible to avoid using any of the generic statements in your PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter.

4. Language

The language you use when writing the PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter should be simple and easy to understand. You will not impress the recruitment manger by using big words; instead this will put him/her off and will result in your application being thrown away.

5. Formatting

Avoid the use of fancy fonts and colours because the hiring manager does not really care. The formatting of your PWC Kenya Graduate Recruitment cover letter should be simple and easy to read.

I wish to express my interest in the above mentioned position as advertised in the newspaper. I graduated in October last year with a second class upper Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Kenyatta University.

Please find attached my CV for your consideration. I look forward to discussing the value I will be bringing to your company.

Yours Sincerely,
