Writing a Letter of Interest

Writing a letter of interest it is usually directed at the display of your wish and interest to work for a chosen company, on a particular position, dealing with a specific kind of occupation. Such a letter may be dispatched either like a reply for a peculiar job position or just like a revelation of your interest in a chosen job proposal and after that an elucidation if this job is still unoccupied and if you are able to send them your curriculum vitae, employment application and cover letter, asking the leaders of a specific company to consider your job application. But at the same time each of us should understand that the leader of the chosen by you company receives a big amount of such letters every day and that is why before proceeding to the writing a letter of interest it is strictly important to identify what namely you intend to write and only after that you have to commit on paper your statements that will force your conjectural future employer to pay attention exactly on your letter of interest and other documents and after that to hire you on a chosen job. It we try to draw a conclusion here, it will be the following: you have to make your letter of interest stand out against a back ground of other letters on the same subject area.

Dale Carnegie expressed the following opinion in his book “How to Win Friends and Influence People”: “Personally I am very fond of strawberries and cream, but I have found that for some strange reason, fish prefer worms. So when I went fishing, I didn’t think about what I wanted. I thought about what they wanted. I didn’t bait the hook with strawberries and cream. Rather, I dangled a worm or grasshopper in front of the fish and said: “Wouldn’t you like to have that?” Why not use the same common sense when fishing for people?”[1] If you want roughly speaking to fish the leader committee responsible for the placement of personnel in a chosen company by your letter of interest, find out and explore the origin and the qualification of this company and of the granted services and commodities produced there.

Inquire about the right spelling of your supposed future employer’s name, surname and title in order not to make any mistakes by their writing.

When you start to write the first paragraph in the body of your letter, suggest the recipient of your letter that you hope to receive a job position in this very company, trying not to begin your sentence with such words as “I” or “My name is…”

Writing the next paragraphs give your view on your education, knowledge, character qualities and qualification explaining by their enumeration why you are the best claimant upon receiving exactly this job position.

When you draw nearer to the writing of your last paragraph, do not forget to thank your conjectural employer for not ignoring your letter attempting to mention his or her name, surname and title here once more. Do not forget to refer to your contact information when you write any business letter.

Hence it follows that the writing a letter of interest is not such a difficult task and all you have to do is to adhere to the enumerated above points.
