Application Letters

Maybe you haven’t written an application letter before. That’s ok because it means you are starting off fresh.

Application letters are the fastest way to tell an employer exactly who you are and what you can do. It is simply your resume shortened into a few paragraphs, and employers love them!

While some people think application letters are old fashioned, employers see it as doing them a favour. Application letters follow a simple process – why you’re applying for the job, how your experience and abilities relate to the role, why you’d be great for the position and then asking for an interview.

Tips to help you write your application letter

Letter of Introduction

When walking into businesses off the street (commonly known as ‘cold calling’), it can be difficult for employers to remember everything about you after you leave. The best way to be remembered is to write a short letter of introduction.

Letters of introduction are a lot like application letters but with one small difference. Application letters are used to apply for a job that is already advertised. Letters of introduction are asking if there are any jobs available. One is a response, and one is a request.

Letters of introduction follow a simple template

How you can use this knowledge:

Create great letters

Write amazing letters that make employers sit up and pay attention!

Learn more about computers

Use programs like Word to make your letter look great.
