Fresher’s Job Application Letter Format

If you are fresh out of university and looking for your first job, start with short listing the companies you wish to apply to and the kind of work you want to do. Once you are through with that, it’s time to write your job application letters.

As a fresher, you don’t have much work experience to show, so it’s important you highlight your academic achievements and any leadership roles you took up as part of the university club or the societies you were part of.

Always remember, your employer is basically looking for something which will convince him that you can deliver results when under pressure. So if you were the captain of your school basketball team, make sure you talk about it.

Here is a sample job application letter sample for a fresh graduate.

Dear Talent BPHR

I am writing this email in response to your university campus recruitment drive planned at MIT.

My name is Mark Frontnote and I am a student of the Master’s Program in Computer Science at MIT. I am in my final trimester at the university and I am recipient of the prestigious XYZ Scholarship. You can refer to some of my research publications on the university website here.

I am passionate about the advances happening in the field of connected devices and the Internet of Things and I think pursuing a career with Qualcomm will allow me to work with the best minds in the area and continue my research while contributing to the success of the organisation.   

Apart from academic interests, I work with the Environmental Sciences department for spreading awareness about the environmental impacts of Oil Exploration in the African continent. I am also an active member of the Toastmasters Club at MIT and play with the university soccer team.

Job Application Letter Format

The quality of your job application letter more or less determines your chances of landing the interview call. Seasoned recruiters can scan through you job application letter and can easily figure out if you are a genuine candidate and if you really posses those credentials required for the job.

Job applications are written in block format and are generally emailed along with your resume and cover letter. A job application letter differs from your cover letter by describing your specific interest in the profile and the organisation and also how you found out about this position.
