Covering letter for speculative CV's

I'm thinking of sending my CV out to Accountants Practices in my area with a covering letter, as I've recently been spring cleaning my CV and you never know what might come up :001_smile:

I'm a bit stuck as to what to put in my letter, is it just a case of:

Dear Sir/madam,

Please find enclosed a copy of my CV for your consideration.......

Or do you put in something more imaginative?

Thanks for your help

Wendy

    I always say this, but use coloured (warm pale yellow is always a good choice for me while I tend to dislike cold blue), high quality watermarked paper such as 100gsm Conqueror or similar. The colour will make your own letter stand out amongst the other paperwork on a busy desk while the quality won't make it look like you just liberated a few reams of 80gsm bog standard printer paper from the office stationery cupboard!
