A job opening in your firm has to be filled as soon as possible. You want to find the right person for the job. Outsiders will be reached as well, but it's also a good idea to give your own employees the chance to apply for the position first. You need to mention what documents are needed in order to get this position. It's a great opportunity for your employees to reach a new level in their career or they could, in this way, help their relatives with a new job.

Make sure to consider the following writing tips when you write a job application via email:

Your formal cover letters will be longer than those that are the body of an email to which you attach your resume.

Although emails, in general, tend to be shorter than formal cover letters sent in hardcopy, do not forget to introduce yourself properly and provide an overview of why you believe you are (the most) qualified candidate, but do not go into too much detail. Email cover letters can be beneficial for applications that request a resume to be submitted via email but are not explicitly required.

Email Cover Letters

Formal cover letters will be longer than those that are the body of an email where you attach your resume. For email, you will still introduce yourself and provide an overview of why you believe you are a qualified candidate. However, you will not include as much detail as in a full-page cover letter.

Regarding the structure of a model letter:

The first paragraph is an introduction of yourself and how you learned of the opening, as well as your interest in the position/organization. This requires you to relate yourself to the organization or to the position in order to demonstrate your interest.

The middle paragraph(s) is a profile of how your skills and experience match the qualifications sought. In order to construct this profile, consider the following points:
  • Read the job description carefully to get a clear idea of what the company is looking for. This goes beyond just the “qualifications” section of a job description. Make sure to discuss your ability to do the job.
  • Review the company website and other materials to learn what type of person the company might value.
  • Match your experience and education (academics, volunteer experience, etc);
  • Describe why you believe those experiences make you a qualified candidate for the open job position. 

The last paragraph wraps up the cover letter. You should reiterate your interest in the position and desire to hear from them regarding the opportunity. You also want to thank the reader for their time in considering your application and provide information on how you can be reached. If you would like and are able to, you can state that you will follow-up with them directly. Be positive and confident.

Sample letter

Company Name would like to announce a new vacant position in the capacity of the job title in the department name. The candidate must have at least {{No. of years}} years of experience with a Degree Name Degree. Further qualifications here. Priority will be given to internally referred candidates. We will postpone the public announcement of the opening until we have exhausted all referred candidates. Feel free to refer any of your friends or relatives with related qualifications and expertise.
