However, if you take it onestep 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 toprovide additional information on your skills and experience.

Use this application letter format as a guideline to createcustomized application letters to send to employers.5.   Job Application Letter TemplateJob application letter template to use to create your own personalized job application letters forapplying for a job. ·   Steps for Writing a Job Application Letter The traditional format of a business letter applies to most job application letters. The layout isthe first thing noticed: those who receive business letters such as covering letters for a jobapplication expect them to be set out in a specific way.If everything is set out appropriately, the employer or recruiter concentrates on the content andmeaning. 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. Positionyour 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 srcinate from an individual.So the message must be placed in the middle, underneath the applicant’s address on theright, 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 alllines aligned left. Aligning all paragraphs to the left is more legible than full justification.·   Key Points to Consider It is not wise to use slang, technical jargon, abbreviations, contractions, or unexplained acronyms ina job application. Neither is it appropriate to use a conversational tone. Job application letters areserious 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 ofpretensions or self-satisfaction.Personal items, such as family news or casual felicitations, should be omitted from a good jobapplication 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.·   Dos and Don’tsDosDon’ts Do check all details, even if they are yourown and you are very familiar with them.Mistakes in addresses, telephone numbers,or email addresses could mean theapplication letter does not reach itsdestination on time. If details becomeconfusing to the recruiter, or show thesender to be negligent or forgetful, theopportunity can be lostDon’t neglect the significant steps of editing,checking, correctly drafting and proofingyour application letter. Do remember to use the correct traditionallayout.Don’t use a familiar or casual style – lettersto apply for a position are impersonal andformal.Do follow established commercial oracademic formats.Don’t include details unless they arepertinent to the core objective for sendingthe job application letter.Do use the best stationeryDon’t use hackneyed phrases, clichés, orother language that could betray a languageweakness. Make sure your turn of phrase isprecise.Do contain your text between anappropriate greeting and a traditionalsalutation.Don’t ignore the fact that punctuation,syntax, grammar, and word choice affectmeaning. The whole package must impressany recruiter or prospective employer withyour language skills and talents.Do check that the date on your jobapplication letter is the same as the day youput it in the mailDon’t use all caps or too many italics. ·   Common MistakesAvoid making mistakes that might be risky, or that might lose you the opportunity to work in theplace of your dreams. Some frequent mistakes found are:§   Omitting to request an interview. Do this in the last paragraph and be firm and clear. Beingdemanding 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. Avoidcolloquialisms and slang. Remember that a well-mannered message is always mosteffective.§   The most frequent mistake made in job application letters is to flout convention and placeparagraphs, addresses, or salutations in the wrong place.§   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 oftenomit to state their qualification for it, or ask to speak personally with the person in charge. Notes:1.   Applicant’s Address2.   Date3.   Write in the following sequence§   Name of the responsible officer§   Post of the responsible officer§   Name of the organization§   Address of the organization4.   Addressee:§   Address to the responsible officer as far you can, e.g. Mr. Lee5.   Title§   State relevant post6.   First Paragraph§   State again the post you are applying for end explain how the vacancy is known
