How to write a letter of
application
Whether you are writing a letter of application in answer
to a job advertisement or just searching for work that has
not been advertised, the reason is the same - to get an
interview! The letter of application is likely to be the first
correspondence you will have with an employer on which
he/she will be able to judge you. Competition for jobs can
be tough and your job application needs to stand out.
At times, employers may deal with hundreds of
applications for the one position.
Application letters are an important part of the job
package you send to the employer. Although your resume
will necessarily outline your relevant work history,
qualifications, dates and specific details about your job
duties – the cover letter will generally contain more
personal information and will include your motivations
for seeking the position.
Cover letters are a useful way to ‘fill in the gaps’ that may
be present if an employer was only to read your resume.
For example, your cover letter can explain things like:
interstate relocation, career change, periods of
unemployment and other details that may be unclear
from reading your resume alone.
Use Quick tip 6 - Writing letters (page 93) and
Checklist 3 - Positive skill words for job applications
(page 86) when writing job application letters to make
sure you include all of the relevant information in a
reader friendly format.

RE:

TRADE ASSISTANT – Position Number: 101A

Dear Ms Jones
This letter is in application for the above position as advertised in the West Australian on Saturday,
25 June 2011 My interest in this role stems from my genuine desire to utilise my driving, labouring and
trade assistant experience and embark upon a secure and long term career within the mining industry.
My employment background includes a solid and competent 10 year history in heavy combinationsemi trailer truck driving, fabricating/boiler making and general manual labour. In addition,
I possess trade qualifications in welding as well as various permits and certifications suitable for this
position. Throughout my work history I have displayed excellent safety awareness which I believe to
be crucial in mining industry. I pride myself on my commitment to safety and fatigue management.
During my employment as truck driver and labourer for the Railway Corporation in Kalgoorlie WA,
I was responsible for the safety of colleagues travelling in my Truck Cab. The nature of this job
required working in remote, difficult locations and at times I had to make crucial decisions that
involved the safety of our crew. Whilst employed as Truck Driver with TOLL Logistics, I abided by a
strict Fatigue Management program set in place by both TOLL Logistics and the Roads Authority, to
which I am proud I had no strikes against my name for unsafe practices.
I am a quick learner and require minimum instruction to acquire new skills. These qualities give me the
necessary att ributes to succeed within mine site operations. In addition to my interest, qualifications
and experience for the role, I am a highly responsible individual who is most suited to the mining
environment. I have no hesitation with shift work and/or FIFO schedule. Please refer to my curriculum
vitae and certificates attached.
I would genuinely welcome the opportunity of an offer to work for this company. I have recently
moved to Western Australia from Queensland and am available for an immediate start. Please do not
hesitate to contact me on 0400 000 000 for any further information and/or to arrange a personal
