How do I write a simple application letter 

  • Write a letter that is clear. Because it is your introduction to employers.
  • Check the spelling and grammar in your letter.
  • Focus on your positive skills and experience.
  • Ensure your letter is less than 3/4 of a page.
  • Get to the point.
  • Include in the letter your skills that match the job ad.
  • Always include the job title that you are applying for.

What to avoid when writing your simple letter

  • 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.

I help clients across Australia. Including clients in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne. In addition to international clients. Including clients from USA, UK, Germany, Singapore, Brazil and Canada.

  • Use the above letter as a sample letter. Then modify it to write your own letter.
  • Some focus on checking different simple application letters. But I focus on just a simple letter and on making the resume stand out.
  • The above simple letter sample is for all fields. Even though I used teacher in this sample letter. 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 letter that you send.
  • I will be adding another sample soon.
