In our recent post/ article we’ve talked about tips to write an application letter and the format to write an application letter. But in this article, we are talking about the content and how the letter is to be written. All you need to do is to read this article to the last statement.
- Make research and inquiry about the company and position.
- Start the letter with the description of your interest.
- Sketch out your experience and qualification.
- Also, add your area specialization or personality.
- Show gratitude.
- conclude the letter.
1. Make research and inquiry about the company and position.
It is advisable to write a different application for each job you are applying for, so you will be able to say in detail all the information you have gathered concerning such a post. You can get all the information needed on the firm’s or company’s website with other position listings. Match your skills with that of the ones needed in the post.
2. Start the letter with the description of your interest.
Begin the first paragraph of your letter with the title of the job you are looking for and where you saw the vacancy post. Add the interest you have for the post and the company so that the reader will know that the letter is not a general application letter, so it is important to please that person swiftly and concisely.
Example: “I saw the vacancy post on one of the available jobs in google jobs, and so much interested. I Am enticed by your company’s mission of innovation and putting the customer first. I graduated from the university some months ago with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. So I assume with my educational experience, I will be able to work in a fast-paced marketing department like the one in your organization.
3. Sketch out your experience and qualification.
The few next paragraphs should talk about your qualification, experience, and skills following the company’s goal and mission. In as much as a job application letter must stand alone without a resume, then you should share your experience about what’s in line with the post or job you are applying for.
4. Also, add your area specialization or personality.
As you’re writing your letter, make sure to fuse your area or aspect of personality while still professional. A friendly and engaging letter can appeal to your reader especially when they know where you fit in.
5. Show gratitude.
Before signing off on your letter, make sure you show a sign of appreciation to the hiring manager for taking his or her time to read your letter. They take time out of their scheduled day to read your letter, so appreciate that time in a pleasant and acknowledged way.
Example: “I appreciate the time you take to study my letter. Since you likely receive a lot of application letters for this vacant post. But you taking your time to go through my letter to know why am good for this post is a privilege. So once again, am extremely grateful for your time. “
6. conclude the letter.
Most people use “sincerely” or “Best”, although both are professionally ok. The last line of your letter should be your full name and your signature the line before (that’s if it will be sent as a hard copy). But if it is being sent as a mail after your full name Your contact information should follow instead of being at the top of the letter.
