ENGLISH APPLICATION LETTER

January 30, 2011 2 comments

For about 3 weeks ago, my friend asked me the sample of application letter. Then, I became inspired to write an example here. As we know, application letter is a kind of “surat penjualan” which through this, we try to “sell” our knowledge, our experiences, our skills, our services, and our personality. Here are the examples (hope it will be useful for you):

Dear Sir,

With reference to your advertisement for an efficient secretary, I wish to apply this job.

After graduated from secretary academy, I began to work as a secretary in a firm of exporter for whom I worked for two years. Unfortunately they have to stop their activities and I have, therefore, to look for a new job.

I am very good in shorthand and typewriting. For the last six months I worked part-time in an Account Office and have a fair knowledge of book-keeping.

I shall be 25 years of age by the end of this month.

 

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

One of the public relation staff, Mr. Tarigan, has told me that you have inquired whether he can recommend one of the students for the post of assistant secretary in your firm. As I shall be leaving the course at the end of this month, he has suggested that I should apply for this position.

I have just completed a 6 months course and enclosed the certificate which I obtained. As you will see I have a speed of 120 words in shorthand and 60 in typing. I know, the principle of accountancy and I am familiar with all types of business correspondence.

In addition I attended the classes in German and French and have a good knowledge of both. I am sure you will not regret to take me as an assistant secretary in your firm because the course I have been joining provides the best preparation for a business career.

I am 21 years of age and live with my parents in this city. I was educated at Senior State High School which I left with the high school certificate.

I should be grateful if you would give me an opportunity for interview.

 

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

I am talking courage to write to you to inquire whether there is a vacancy in your firm which I might usefully fill.

I have studied management at the faculty of economics which I left in August with a first class honor degree. Last year our faculty arranged a visit to your factory and we were shown over the various departments of it and I was really surprised and decided to work with you if you could hire me.

I fully realize that it is unusual to apply for a position in this way but it is just possible that in a big concern like yours there might be a job where my qualifications could be useful.

If my application interested you, I should be happy to work for a trial period of 3 moths at a nominal salary. I am 23 years of age and an Indonesian nationality.

I hope you will give me the chance of an interview and I want to assure you that I would do my very best.

 

Yours faithfully,
