How To Successfully Write a Job Application Letter

Many applicants fail to secure jobs today not because their application letter was not received, but just because they failed to put up their application in a good standard.
Do you need to write a letter to apply for a job? Not sure what to include or how to format your letter? What does an employer expect to read in the letters they receive from applicants?
Here's all the information you need to write a job application letter that will help you secure a job interview. Kindly read this post to the end.
When you're looking for a new job,many of your applications will be completed online either directly on an employer website or via a job board. Before you start job searching, you should first prepare to complete online job applications. This requires gathering all the information you'll need to apply. It will be easier to get your applications in if you have all the employment information employers want on hand.
Tips for Writing a Successful Job Application Letter
Below are tips which can help you in the writing of any application letter.
Follow these strategies to write a successful job application letter:
• Get off to a direct start:
In your first paragraph, explain simply why you are writing. Mention the job title and company name, and also where you came across the job listing. While you can also briefly mention why you are a strong candidate, this section should be short and to-the-point.
• Offer something different than what's in your resume:
It's rare to send an application letter without also sending a resume. Your application letter, therefore, doesn't have to duplicate your resume. Your language can be a bit more personal than in resume bullet points — you can tell a narrative about your work experience and career.
• Make a good case.
Your first goal with this letter is to move on to the next step: an interview. Your overarching goal, of course, is to get a job offer. Use your application letter to further both of these causes. Offer details about your experience and background that show why you are a good candidate. How have other jobs prepared you for the position? What would you bring to the position, and to the company? Use this space to emphasize your strengths.
• Close with all the important details.
Include a thank you at the end of your letter. You can also share your contact information. If you'd like, mention how you will follow up.

OP. It's well.
Writing good Application letters is good just that it doesn't guarantee 100% job success esp in Nigeria.

I normally use the points listed in the job description to draft my application letter. In that way I can easily sell myself based on what the job entails and the skills they require.
