IMPORTANT TIPS when looking for a job- Application Letter



Definition: A letter of application, also known as a cover letter, is a document sent with your resume to provide additional information on your skills and experience.
A letter of application typically provides detailed information on why are you are qualified for the job you are applying for. Effective application letters explain the reasons for your interest in the specific organization and identify your most relevant skills or experiences.
Your application letter should let the employer know what position you are applying for, why the employer should select you for an interview, and how you will follow-up.
Before you start:
    • Read the advert closely so that you can tailor your application to the requirements of the job
    • Research the organization: this will show prospective employers that you really are interested in them.

When writing an application letter you should include:
  • First Paragraph: Why you are writing - mention the job you are applying for and where you found the listing.
  • Middle Paragraph(s): What you have to offer the employer - mention why your skills and experience are a good fit for the job.
  • Last Paragraph: Say thank you to the hiring manager for considering you and note how you will follow up.
