Application Letter Sample for Fresh Graduates

Are you a recent graduate currently looking for a job? If you are, then you must have experienced firsthand how challenging it is to write an application letter.

An application letter is one of the first few things that you need to prepare when applying for a job. Your application letter, together with your resume, are two of the most important documents you need in your bid to get a job and finally join the workforce.

The term “application letter” and “cover letter” are often used interchangeably though both are different when it comes to purpose, content and length. To avoid confusion, we are strictly going to use the term “application letter” on this article to describe a document which main purpose is to describe your skills, market your abilities and summarizes your experiences.

Your application letter serves as your formal (albeit non-personal) introduction with your potential employer. It contains your background, summarizes your knowledge and experiences and includes a few more details as to why you are qualified for the job. More importantly, your application letter expresses your intent to apply for a specific job within an organization, business or company.

To help you effectively persuade your potential employer in considering your application, take some notes from these application letter samples.

Application Letter Writing Tip: When intending to submit a hard copy of your application letter (and resume), make sure that you send it in a strict business letter format.

Email Subject: Eric Tala, Marketing Associate Position

Dear Ms. Castañeda,

I would like to express my interest in applying for the position of Marketing Associate as was recently made available in your company.

I believe that my degree in Business Administration (BSBA) major in Marketing from the Philippine School of Business Administration (PSBA) has prepared me for this position. As a student, I was equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to help develop and drive effective marketing strategies.

During my internship at Uniliver Philippines’ Marketing Department, I learned how companies determine what product or service to sell, how to reach target demographics and how to respond to the demands of competitors. More importantly, I had the opportunity to work with seasoned professionals who taught me how to easily grasp complex marketing concepts and at certain times, how to roll with the punches in order to achieve various objectives.

I have also acquainted myself with a wide range of skills that allow me to blend with the group or team’s culture and to continuously strive to reach common goals amidst failures and setbacks.

My active involvement in many academic and extracurricular activities has done so well in developing my communication and leadership skills, which are vital in finding success in the corporate world.

With this application letter, I attach herewith my resume for your full consideration. Thank you for taking time to review my application and I am looking forward to your reply so that we can further discuss my application.

Yours sincerely,

Alvin C. Marfal

Parañaque City, Metro Manila 1700

Application Letter Writing Tip: Make it a point to include the necessary email subject when sending your application letter via email. The email subject provided on this application letter sample follows the usual format (name, position you are applying for) though some recruiters require applicants to send their application letter (and resumes) with a specific email subject.

Also, when sending your application letter thru email, remember to include your contact details on the email signature. By doing so, you will enable the recruiter or potential employer to respond to your application immediately.

Remember that these samples are merely templates meant to serve as a basis in writing your own, personalized application letter. When writing an application letter, feel free to customize it according to your own personal preference. You don’t want to have just another generic application letter because chances are the hiring manager has already read hundreds, or maybe thousands of it. You want your application letter to stand out and ultimately showcase why you are the best person for the job.
