the purpose of a letter of applicationis to help the applicant obtain the job he is interested in. it should state clearly what position the applicant wants, and should tell what his abilities are and what he has to offer. it should provide a quick, clear picture of the applicant＇s qualifications, accomplishment and aims. it should present the applicant to possible employees in the best light.
a well-written letter of application, however, does not necesarily guarantee a position; but it does insure consideration and a better chance of an interview. the applicant cannot hope to get his whole story into his letter, but he should cover enough ground to intrigue the prospective employer and make the employer willing to meet him, speak to him, and find out more about him. it takes more than a good letter to land a job; instead, it takes ability, specific experience, and good character. but the letter may open the door for the applicant, and give him the chance to "sell" himself.
