Customizing your cover letter

When you create a cover letter in VisualCV, it will be given a custom format. This means that the cover letter is not associated with any of your resume. You can customize the font, text size, and margins in the Appearance tab.

If you want your cover letter to match a specific CV, you can choose from existing CVs in the Format menu.

Selecting a resume will update the cover letter's font to match the selected resume.

For information on writing a cover letter, consider reading:  How to Write a Cover Letter and Cover letter examples.


To create a cover letter using a CV template, create a new resume and ignore all the resume specific sections. Add a Text Section by clicking on the New Section menu, then write your content inside. You can export that to PDF and get a great looking cover letter, executive bio or any document format you require.
