Letter of application, model document for IEGS students, Stockholm.

Your Name Your Address Today’s Date Mr./Ms. Employer’s Name (If you don't know it, find out!) Big Fat Company Address Dear Ms. Employer, [Dear Ms American Employer:] FIRST PARAGRAPH: This is the quot;why I'm writing to youquot; paragraph which immediately tells the employer the position you want to be considered for. This is short - usually 2-3 sentences. Cover: • Which position you are applying for. • How you heard about the position is irrelevant unless it is through a mutual contact (i.e. the post hasn’t been advertised yet). • Show why you are interested in this position or organization. The goal is to make a connection. Avoid sweeping statements e.g. “I have always dreamed of being a doctor and therefore...” SECOND PARAGRAPH: This is the quot;why I'm qualifiedquot; paragraph. Highlight some of your most relevant experiences and qualities as they relate to the position for which you are applying. Choose 2 - 3 points you want to make about Specific experiences/accomplishments or about general qualities you have exhibited, and provide Specific examples to support those points. This paragraph will change according to the job/employer for which you are applying. This is usually the longest paragraph of the letter. You may break this paragraph into two if it looks too lengthy or if your points work best in separate paragraphs. Points to ponder: • The first sentence should be a hard-hitting opener. It is a quick introduction, which is accomplishment-oriented and directed at the skills and qualifications needed for the job/industry. • The body of the paragraph should provide evidence to back up what you've just claimed. Cite specific jobs/internships/activities/projects and accomplishments associated with those experiences. Use your resume to come up with some specifics, but NEVER reiterate passages from your resume word for word. Discuss why what you did is to the employer- relate the facts to the job. Strong examples are important! • The final sentence is a summary of what you've discussed above. It's a good idea to mention the position title and company name to bring the reader back to the specific job in question. FINAL PARAGRAPH: This is a short 1-3 sentences paragraph. You should refer to the enclosed resume, demonstrate that you are available for an interview and provide your contact number. Yours sincerely, [Am. Eng. Sincerely,] Your Signature Your Name
