You know of the Cover Letter. That’s the document that you send attached with your CV when you’re applying for an open position. Now, a Letter of Interest might have the same content as a Cover Letter. However, they are not the same thing.
When you’re applying for a position, your Cover Letter is the way that you introduce yourself briefly to employers. That happens even before they take a look at your CV. A Letter of Interest, on the other hand, you can send at anytime. Whether or not a company is hiring, sending a good Letter of Interest will allow you to get on the company’s radar.
It’s a way of introducing yourself to a company you’re interested in and seeing about the possibility of employment with them. For this reason, the Letter of Interest is also sometimes referred to as a Letter of Inquiry.
