Goal

Let’s learn how to structure a cover letter or letter of application; a very useful skill when you’re applying for a job.


Language Discovery

Let’s answer the questions from the text in step 1:

  • What is the purpose of the paragraph in blue?
    • To state the purpose for writing: to apply for a job.
  • What is the purpose of the paragraphs in red?
    • To summarize your most relevant skills and experience.
  • What is the purpose of the paragraph in green?
    • To close the idea and invite them to write back for a future contact.

Writing a cover letter

Remember


  • Use a formal style and don’t use contractions
  • If you don’t know the person’s name:
    • Start: Dear Sr/Madam,
    • Finish: Yours faithfully
  • If you know the person’s name:
    • Start: Dear+ Mr/Mrs/Ms Name
    • Finish: Sincerely

    Dear  Sir/Madam,

I am writing to apply for a job as an accountant in your company. I have read your job posting on your company website and I believe I am a very good candidate.

I have a degree in financial management and accounting from the University Complutense of Madrid. I have 2 years’ experience working as an accountant in Fininco Inc. I am confident that my education and experience will make me a valuable member of your team. I have attached my CV, so you can learn about my educational background and all of my work experience.

I am available to meet for an interview at your earliest convenience. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Juan Maldonado.
