Sample Job Application Letter
If you've ever been on the lookout for a new job, you've probably come across the need to write a job application letter. Though writing a short letter seems like a simple enough task, it generally starts off bad and gets worse. It's one of those things that you wish you could just get over with, or even skip. Well I've put together a sample to help guide you through writing one. It's fairly simple, but it gets the job done. Feel free to copy and paste this to your word processor, change the names and dates, print it, and send it to your future employer. Go ahead, I don't mind at all!
