Can I write one cover letter for both my husband and I?

by Carolina Lima

My husband and I want to apply to work together in the same company (we are both biologists working at the environmental impact area).

I would like to send one e-mail introducing the both of us to the company and enclose our individual cover letters and CVs.

How can I write an e-mail to introduce both of us and our professional skills?

Thank You!

ANSWER: Caroline, I don't advise you to write one cover letter. Cover letters should be focused on selling you to the employer, so you can obtain an interview. You can't do both of you justice in one brief letter. Write 2 different letters! But it IS OK to mention in each of your letters that you are both applying for the job.
