We know, some universities actually have its own standards or types of application letters writing. There is no specific form of application letter that can guarantee us to accept in a certain university. But don’t worry, the entire format which is followed by some universities are relatively the same. Usually, we are talking about our achievement, background of education, the reason for applying for the position, our strengths etc. The best secret of writing an application letter is, to be honest about what we have written. We do not need to write what we have not mastered well. The purpose is to gain the admission committee to know us well and to be the best person to fill out the offer.
Here are several tips to take as the consideration in proposing your application letter.
- Proposing ourselves through the strengths over the university required
If we have some achievements, it is the best choice to put on our CV. This will be a positive impression for the recruiter, especially if the achievement is related to the position we applied.
- To be honest towards what we have written
That’s the key. We do not need to force ourselves to be what we had mastered before. That just will give the recruiters to think over yourself.
- Convey the position we are applying for
Since may the university has many departments, so conveying the position you need is needed. To limit what we expect toward the job.
- A brief but stunning statements
This is also the compulsory thing to put in. Brief and stunning statements will lead CV to a bright impression.
- More editing process and proofreading
Don’t just write and write. The last step you may follow before submitting to the HR is editing even proofreading it. The technical mistakes of the CV will lead the recruiter to think that you are the careless person, meanwhile, the absence of the typos will give the recruiter the impression that you are a careful and intended person.
