If you are able to, send them as PDFs so that the layout doesn't change if they open it in a different version of word.
It also looks better (I think).

Great thank you, I will definitely send a copy as an attachment. I was a bit worried that if I didnt attach it as a word doc that it wouldnt be as printer friendly and the format would be different to the application and cv.
Thank you very much! :-)

I would make the email the covering letter.
then put a copy of the email in a word document as an attachment.

but put after your signature in the email what you have attached
so:

attached:
copy of this email (covering letter)
my CV

I would send as an attachment but put a short version of why you are suitable for the job in the body of the email.Good luck.

Hi all
I'm applying for a job that has an email address to send everything to, but I'm not sure what to do with the covering letter.
Should I put it in the body of the email, or send it as an attachment along with the application and cv?
Any advice much appreciated!
