Letter of Interest


A letter of interest, also known as a letter of signature or a prospectus, is sent to companies that can recruit but haven't specified a particular job opening to apply for.

You can use a customization to see if the company has any job openings that suit you. You can also use an interest statement to arrange an informative interview with someone at the company.

A point of interest is a good way to get in the door with a company you're interested in.

Letter of Interest Format

Contact person. First, try to find a person specific to the company to send the letter to, for example, A manager in a department you're interested in. See if you have connections with the company through family, friends or former colleagues.

What to include in the letter. Your point of interest should include information on why the company interests you and why your skills and experiences will be an asset to the business. Use the letter to sell yourself and explain how you would value the business.

Letter conclusion. End your letter by explaining that you would like to meet the employer to investigate possible career opportunities. You can even suggest creating an informative interview if there are no vacancies with the company.

Include your contact information. In the conclusion you provide information on how you can be contacted if the company is interested in following up with you.

Keep your letter short and to the point. You want to get your point fast and clear without taking too much of the employer time.

See these detailed tips for writing a POI (Point of interest) before you start writing your own letters.

How to use POIs

It's a good idea to review examples of points of interest before writing your letter, view our listed example below and search google to view more different examples.

Along with helping with your layout, examples can help you see what kind of content you need to include in your document (eg, examples of your abilities and experiences).

You can also look at a letter of interest template to get a feel for how to put your letter out and what to include (such as introductions and body sections).

While examples, templates and guidelines are a good starting point for your letter, you should always be flexible. You should tailor a letter to suit your work experience and the company you contact.

Dear Sir / Madam. Surname, last name,

I read about X's retail management training program in College Graduate Magazine and inquire about opening opportunities. I'm looking for a career in retail management and plan to move to the New York area in the near future. I would be interested in learning more about the company and the possibilities.

I have a BS in Management and Business and three years of Retail experience as a Sales Associate and Key Holder. I also completed two internships in retail management. Because of my salesmanship and professionalism, I was named Intern of the Year in one of the companies.

My resume, which is attached, contains additional information about my experiences and abilities. I would appreciate it if you could discuss the training program with you and give more information about my candidacy. I can be reached anytime on my mobile, (Your Mobile Number).

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to talking to you about this exciting opportunity.
