When writing an application letter, remember that you probably have competition. Your audience is a professional who screens and hires job applicants—someone who may look through dozens or even hundreds of other applications on the day she receives yours. The immediate objective of your application letter and accompanying resume is to attract this person’s attention. Your ultimate goal is to obtain an interview. As you write your application letter, be sure you complete three tasks: catch the reader’s attention favorably, convince the reader that you are a qualified candidate for the job, and request an interview.
Finalizing the Letter. Edit and Review: Once you are finished with writing the letter, try to look for errors. Check for spellings, punctuations, grammatical errors. Don’t Staple the Letter: Use a paperclip on the top of the left corner if there are many pages. Use of staple doesn’t look nice for a business letter. Posting of the Letter: Always use clear and correct spelling for mentioning the name and address of the recipient.
