Just a quick question about the ideal format for the 750 word cover letter for the NRF TC application.
My idea is to structure it in this manner:
Dear Graduate Recruitment,
1) Why (commercial) law,

I thought I would probably do this- say that I could not recall ever having done so, but talk about what I'd do if I did. I honestly think the last time I ever did that was when I was about 13 years old and I don't really think it'd be relevant to this application!

Instead, I panicked as...
Thanks both! Would you say it is better (as a very rough, general rule) to always give an example of work experience, or does it seem more well-rounded to also give examples of general life experience in an application?
