How do I write a simple application letter?

  • Write a letter that is clear. Because it is your introduction to employers.
  • Ensure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes.
  • Focus on your positive skills and experience.
  • Kept it short and less than 3/4 of a page.
  • Get to the point.
  • Include your skills that match the job ad.
  • Always include the job title that you are applying for.

What to avoid 

  • Don’t mention weaknesses.
  • Do not include salary expectations. But when asked, indicate that you are negotiable. Also, let me work with you to help you negotiate a higher salary.
  • If your letter is too long, the boss may not read your resume. Because they don’t have time.
  • Don’t use “I” too much.
  • Use the above as a sample letter. Then modify it to write your own letter.
  • Some focus on checking different formats. But I focus on just a simple email and on making the resume stand out.
  • The above simple letter sample is for all fields. Even though I used teacher in this example. So use it whether you are a doctor, CEO, business analyst, engineer or childcare teacher. Can also be used to write a cover letter for all industries.
  • Keep a copy of each cover letter that you send.
