What is the structure of an application letter? What choices do I make regarding the structure, opening words and layout? The structure of an application letter is almost always the same.

Your adress

Start with your own address, plus your e-mail address.

Mr John Smith

122, My Street,

Kingston, New York 13401

United States

firstnamelastname@gmail.com

Tip: use a business e-mail address, not a 'sweety', 'mc' or something similar.

Employer's address

ABC Inc.

Attn Mr. William Cole

A22, California 13401

21 February 2019

Topic

Be specific. Not only write 'application', but also name the position.

Subject: application junior Webdesigner

Salutation: female variant is Dear Mrs..

Dear Mr. William Cole,

Tip : last names with an insert are capitalized.

Introduction

Catchy opening sentence and reason. Show yourself.

I saw that the company has won an Effie in the 'most effective online campaign' category - congratulations! The result-oriented approach of your agency appeals to me so much, that's why I'm applying for a position as a junior web designer.

Argumentation

Why are you the ideal candidate?

I have 2 years of experience at Top Designers in Florida, and where I work for clients such as C1, C2 and C3. I started testing my work on my own initiative. I conducted A / B tests through an online tool and thus always offered the customer the most effective variant. I also thought along with the concept team. First in the form of practice assignments, but later my ideas were also applied. The figures show that my ideas often score higher than the objective.

Short paragraphs

Keep it easy to read. 4 to 5 lines with concrete arguments.

Your agency has been interested in me for years and I follow developments closely. It strikes me that you not only offer the customer innovative concepts, but also promise concrete results. I like that: delivering creative, high-quality work that serves hard figures for the customer. That's exactly what I focus on in my own work.

Closing

Avoid the standard sentences. Sometimes companies receive a hundred application letters. Therefore try to be creative.

I'm convinced that I'm ready to achieve new successes at your office. I would really appreciate it if you take the time to view my portfolio. I will contact you next Wednesday morning. Is another moment better for you? Then I would love to hear it.

Signature

No 'best regards'. Sincerely, only with very formal employers.

Greeting,
