A CV and covering letter are usually required to support the application. They are usually sent by e-mail or sometimes by post. If you apply for seasonal or unqualified work you can so do by phone, because employers usually pre-select for these kinds of jobs.
Although most Latvian businesses are keen to adapt their processes to west European standards, which (in most cases) are less formal, most Latvian companies are still hierarchical in terms of structure and management culture. This is also true of their attitude to the application procedure.The covering letter is very important and should be reliable and convincing. Employers look for candidates who understand their business, mission and market. Fraudulent job experience or other incorrect information is not acceptable. The candidate should treat the employer with respect at all times.
