01

Incorrectly formatted and inconsistent

02

You have not actually referenced the post for which you are applying. This may appear obvious in some cases, but should still be included for clarity.

03

Quite a blunt sentence - can you be more explicit in your meaning here?

04

You have referenced this in the plural. Whilst one area may be your speciality, highlighting a couple more relevant areas may display your flexibility a little more.

05

Can you reference one? Whichever you choose should be something the recipient of the letter will recognise. This will give them a clearer perspective of the kind of projects you have previously worked on.

06

You sound a little resentful here - your flexibility/adaptability is evident from the very fact you were, 'brought in'. Instead, focus more here on the specific reasons why this experience gives you further skills relevant to the position.

07

This is not a professional sign-off.
