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.

A good sample of a job application letter for the post of the Chief Accountant is given below. If you are a fresher and looking for your first job the contents of the letter change and you should refer to the Fresher’s Job Application Letter.
