Previously we discussed about Writing a Job Application Letter that might be a ticket to landing your dream job.

We received a number of requests triggered by a featured image that showed a ‘sample’ letter and thought we work around a sample job application letter. The following is an example of a job application letter to apply for a job.

Dear Mr Mohlomi Seila

I am writing to express my interest in the Mechanical Engineering job position as advertised on on the 1st August 2017. I believe that I am an excellent fit for this position as I have the qualifications and skills needed.

I am a graduate of Lerotholi Polytechnic and hold a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, complemented by a Btech in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Witwatersrand. As part of my internship, I undertook a 6 month placement work as a Junior Mechanical Engineer in a busy multinational corporation and received excellent feedback from the Senior Engineer.

I believe that my academic qualifications, along with exposure to a fast-paced, dynamic organization and my ability to work well as part of a large team have provided me with the skills and experience required to succeed in a company such as Lesotho Electronics Company.

I look forward to hearing from you about the progress of my application. Please find attached my CV, references and copies of my educational certificates. If you have any further questions or require any additional documentation, please contact me using the information above.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
