Top 5 "Musts" for Your Application Letter
HR people read hundreds of application letters. If your
letter cannot draw their attention, nothing will happen. You
can even get an interview. Investing your time in writing a great
application letter always pays off well.
Here are some of my top recommendations for writing an excellent
1. Always write to a specific person. No "To whom it may
concern". Call the company to find out the name of the HR
Manager. If you are serious about getting the job, make sure
you show some seriousness in addressing your letter to a "person".
2. Ensure everything in your letter is Correct. Correct spelling,
correct grammar, correct names, and correct dates. People want
a reliable person. If there are mistakes here and there, how
reliable can be that person?
3. Meet their Needs. Identify from the advertisement the needs
of the company. Tell them how you can meet their needs. This
is why they employ someone.
4. Design a Powerful Opening. People seldom complete reading
an application letter. If the opening is weak, you are discouraging
your future employer to read your letter. Tell them how you can
meet their needs right at the beginning.
5. Keep it Short and Simple. Your application letter should not
be over one page. Leaving most of the details in your resume.
The shorter the letter, the greater the chance your future employer
will complete reading it. Don't play with too much styles, graphics
