What to avoid in your letter of application example

  • Don’t draw attention to weaknesses.
  • Do not mention salary expectations. But, if asked about salary expectations, indicate that your salary expectations are negotiable. Also, let me work with you to help you negotiate a higher salary.
  • If your application letter is too long, the boss may not read your resume. Because they may not have time.
  • Avoid summarizing your resume in your simple application letter.
  • Don’t use “I” too much.


See application letter tips on how to write a letter of application example. Also see cover letter layout.


Use the above letter of application example as a sample. Then modify it to write your own simple application letter. Make an application letter for each online application.
