Applying for a job in English

This posting is for them who will apply for a job in English.

How to write an application letter :
1. Write a specific greeting e.g. Dear Mr. Brown, or use the name of department of him/her e.g. Dear HRD Manager, Dear Recruiter, Dear Search Committee, or Dear Sir/Madam.
2. Explain the origin of the information, e.g. Kompas October 27th, 2008 Edition. And here in the first paragraph you can explain the purpose and reason you apply for a job.

3. If you know someone in the company, mention his/her name there so the employer will pay attention.
4. In the second paragraph you can explain your working experience and skill that show that you are the right person to occupy the vacant position. But don’t write and explain too long here, let the employer know this in your resume.
5. In the end of letter should be short like: “I look forward to hearing from you soon”. Don’t for get to write :” Thank you for your consideration”.

Below are some examples:
