Ireland – Providing a Cover Letter with my CV?

Should I provide a cover letter with my CV?

Yes! A cover letter is always an aspect of the recruitment process that adds flair to your application. It demonstrates that this is the role you really want and you have taken the time to tailor a custom cover letter for the position. This is a much better prospect than a generic CV and employers appreciate the effort and how keen this makes you look.
Otherwise, if employers require anything else, they will always ask. For example, verifying that you’re degree grade is the grade you have specified. Do not provide degrees etc. with your CV.
