APPLICATION LETTER SAMPLES – Graduation season is coming to the Philippines and for upcoming grads, it’s time to start preparing for the job hunt. The first step a fresh graduate can take is to write a cover letter for companies they want to apply for.
We all know that writing a cover letter shouldn’t be that difficult, but the reality is that writing a good application letter can be nerve-wracking. And, in some cases, this can be a deciding factor in whether or not you can get a high-paying job for fresh graduates.
You’re about to embark on your career journey and writing a good application letter might make or break your chances of getting your foot in the door for your career or even your dream job. Even if you have all of the credentials required, how would you fit all your accomplishments into an easy-to-read page?
Well, don’t worry! Because in this article, we are going in-depth into what makes a good application letter. Along with this, we’re going to give some samples that you could get inspiration from for your next application letter. Now, before we get into things, let’s first give a brief discussion on what a cover or an application letter is.
A cover letter is a document that is usually sent along with your resume. This provides a company with additional information regarding your talents, skills, and experiences.
You can also think of it as a sales pitch for yourself! As such, you need to cater your cover letter to the company you’re trying to apply for. With that being said, here are some examples of cover letters tailored toward fresh graduates from the Philippines.
