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.
