    I am thinking of sending letters to potential employers soon, but I don't have anything to put on my CV, so I probably will just write a good letter and hope for the best. Probably, they wont even be recruiting anyway.

    What is the norm here, do people send CVs with the letters? What about my confidentiality?

    Yes, CVs and covering letters go together, even in a speculative application.
