Writing a correct job application letter is a useful talent for anyone planning to enter an administrative role in any industry or profession. In order to write a
job application letter in the most exact manner, the writer must understand that letters employers are familiar with nowadays were established gradually to become
effectual, succinct and workable documents.

A good job application letter addresses all the points stated in the job advertisement. The manner in which a person responds to a commercial announcement
alerts recruiters and employers to their capacity, their level of education, personality, and professionalism.

A standard, generic form for the letter of application is (1) to introduce yourself, (2) to state briefly what you want, what position you are applying for, (3) to
state clearly why you are qualified for the position, (4) to elaborate as to your special assets, why you are particularly well suited for the job, (5) to highlight your
most important training, experiences, skills and accomplishments, and (6) to end with a compelling statement as to why the employer ought to hire you.

a) Here is information on how to write job application letters, along with job application letter samples, examples, and templates to use to write
application letters to apply for jobs.
1. How to Write a Job Application Letter : Writing a job application letters can seems like a challenging task. However, if you take it one step at a time,
you'll soon be an expert at writing application letters to send with your resume.
2. Job Application Letters : A job application letter, also known as a cover letter, is a document sent with your resume to provide additional information
on your skills and experience.
3. Job Application Letter Writing Guidelines : Guidelines for writing a letter of application for employment, including what should be included in the
letter, choosing a font size and style, and letter spacing and formatting.
4. Job Application Letter Format : This job application letter format lists the information you need to include in the job application letter you send with
your resume. Use this application letter format as a guideline to create customized application letters to send to employers.
5. Job Application Letter Template : Job application letter template to use to create your own personalized job application letters for applying for a job.

b) Steps for Writing a Job Application Letter

The traditional format of a business letter applies to most job application letters. The layout is the first thing noticed: those who receive business letters such as
covering letters for a job application expect them to be set out in a specific way.

If everything is set out appropriately, the employer or recruiter concentrates on the content and meaning. If your arrangement on the sheet of paper seems
incorrect, unusual or non-traditional, the prospective employer is distracted from the implicit message.

1. Understand the format, and fill in the content according to that form.
2. Make a list of all the information to go in the letter.
3. Be brief, so the letter can fit onto a single page. Set out the text with wide margins. Position your address, the employer’s address, and the subject of the
letter in the correct spaces. The subject must be centered at the top.
4. Start by stating the reason for the letter.
5. Contain the important parts in three paragraphs, to ensure the main points are clear,.
6. Most job application letters have no letterhead, because they originate from an individual. So the message must be placed in the middle, underneath the
applicant’s address on the right, between a greeting and a salutation.
7. The greeting starts, “Dear [Name]”. Always address the employer by their formal name. It is “Dear Mr. Jones,” not “Dear Larry.”
8. The salutation must be formal, such as “Yours faithfully,” or “Yours sincerely.”
9. Type your full name in upper case below your legal signature.
10. Job application letters are customarily formatted in block style, without indents, with all lines aligned left. Aligning all paragraphs to the left is more
legible than full justification.

c) Key Points to Consider

 It is not wise to use slang, technical jargon, abbreviations, contractions, or unexplained acronyms in a job application. Neither is it appropriate to use a
conversational tone. Job application letters are serious documents, often used as material evidence or commercial certification.
 A job application letter has its own appropriate tone and attitude: assertive but unassuming, confident but not arrogant or conceited. It is improper to
write overly long sentences full of pretensions or self-satisfaction.
 Personal items, such as family news or casual felicitations, should be omitted from a good job application letter.
 Always state the reason for application, the job in question, where you found the announcement, and why you think you are the person most suitable to
take up the position.

d) Dos and Don’ts

Dos Don’ts

email addresses could mean the application letter does not reach its

Do remember to use the correct traditional layout. Don’t use a familiar or casual style – letters to apply for a position are
impersonal and formal.

Do follow established commercial or academic formats. Don’t include details unless they are pertinent to the core objective for
sending the job application letter.
Do use the best stationery Don’t use hackneyed phrases, clichés, or other language that could
betray a language weakness. Make sure your turn of phrase is precise.

e) Common Mistakes : Avoid making mistakes that might be risky, or that might lose you the opportunity to work in the place of your dreams. Some
frequent mistakes found are:
 Omitting to request an interview. Do this in the last paragraph and be firm and clear. Being demanding or rude is also a mistake.
 Long-winded paragraphs.
 Being sycophantic or fawning.
 Text that does not match the occasion and the establishment you approach. Avoid colloquialisms and slang. Remember that a well-mannered
message is always most effective.
 The most frequent mistake made in job application letters is to flout convention and place paragraphs, addresses, or salutations in the wrong
 Incorrectly spaced paragraphs, or a job application letter with more than two paper folds.
 Insufficient clarity about the position for which you are applying. In addition, people often omit to state their qualification for it, or ask to
speak personally with the person in charge.
