And in order to competently draw up such an application letter, certain skills and knowledge are required.

  • - The exact legal name of the organization you want to apply to;
  • - the exact address of this organization (postal or electronic);
  • - surnames, first names and patronymics of the leadership of this organization (so that the appeal was personalized).


Step 1

Carefully fill out the cover page of the application letter, write on it all your contact information (usually a postal and e-mail address, contact phone number, fax and other means of communication), where a response can be sent to you. It is from the title page that the first impression of the letter is formed.

Step 2

When referring to the management of the organization, write a short but succinct annotation of your application (like a resume), in which the whole essence of your appeal should be stated in clear and intelligible language, but without details. Indicate where and for what you are applying, and be sure to describe the expected result and further prospects that you count on in case of a favorable response to your letter of application.

Step 3

Describe what prompted you to contact this particular organization (you will certainly be asked for such a clarification). State everything in sufficient detail, but without undue tragedy, since such application letters automatically raise suspicion of insincerity and may be rejected.

Step 4

State clearly and in detail the goals and objectives that you will be able to accomplish if your letter of application is approved. Indicate the methods by which you are going to solve these problems. Immediately indicate the attachments, if your letter has them (reports, diagrams, tables, photos).

Step 5

At the end of the letter, leave your signature with a decryption (initials of the name and patronymic, full surname) and the date of sending the letter.
