I'm no anything I had to look it up. Looks like it's a cover letter or CL in Americanish. That fresher thing was a new one too I thought you were real clean. You got any work history or education?

If you Google you will find a ton of examples.

Here's the basic formula I was taught by a professional job coach. The letter should include four paragraphs. The two middle paragraphs should be detailed examples of how your past work experience fits specific requirements as described in the job posting. The first and last paragraphs should express your interest in the job, while also referencing as many applicable terms from the job posting as possible.

In short, you're supposed to find any little thing in the job posting that applies to you, and include it (word for word) in the letter. The letter should show that you have many of the skills/attributes they are looking for, as well as give examples of how you've previously demonstrated these skills.

Hope this helps.

CV means curriculum vitae ("the course of your life"). It's another name for your résumé.
