When a job is advertised you reply to it by submitting a job application. Before you start drafting your application, read the advertisement through once more and check what exactly is required from a prospective employee (qualifications, language skills, other requirements). You should show in your application that you possess the qualities which they are looking for. If you do not fulfil all the requirements, be quite open about it. Fortunately, in most cases a young applicant can substitute a lack of substantial work experience with the right attitude, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
Always draft a new application for each job that you apply for – do not use the same wording every time. Copying and pasting cannot be recommended as you may accidentally leave something in the text which suggests that your application had been originally written for some other purpose and this will not give the employer a favourable impression of you as an applicant.
State in your application the reasons for wanting to work for this company and in this position. Give details of your employment and educational background, describe the type of work you are particularly happy to undertake and what recommends you as an employee. State reasons why you should be chosen for the position in question. There is no need to be too modest, and remember to tell the truth.
The contents of your job application should be appropriate, logical and free of spelling errors. The recommended length of a job application is a single sheet (A4). It is good practice to let somebody else read your application (for example your mother or father, your sister or brother, a friend or a teacher) before you send it off. You may overlook spelling errors or inappropriate details whilst another reader will notice these more readily. At the same time you could ask them to give you feedback as to whether, in their opinion, your application would attract the interest of a propective employer.
