Job application letter example - sample cover letters

Updated on July 7, 2011

 Writing a job application letter is not very complicated. Just follow the formal style of letter writing and remember to emphasise how the advertised job fits your education and experience. If the advert mentions specific skills, make sure you include and also mention them within your resume and in your cover letter. If you don’t have enough experience for the job, talk about the projects you’ve done at university or college that helped you get the relevant experience and skills. Don’t forget, for some jobs, many employers like to take people who have experience of working in teams and have people skills.

Feel free to visit the cover letters website for information on how to write your very own cover letters and also for more job letter samples.

      I had car accident (it wasn't my fault, it was praked when another car run into it). Few days after I've received a letter from my isurance company saying: Please contact us to confirm how the details of the other party were optained? . Also they are asking me if I was a witness of the accident or did a witness provide me with information. I don't know what exactly they are asking about? Dothey want to know how I get details of the other driver or are they asking about the company that have my car now to repair it?
