Salutation

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name, (You must leave out this space if you do not have info about whom to address or you may simply write Dear Sir/Madam. A comma after salutation is must. In some countries, dear is not used in a job application letter, since it is considered as a business letter. You should check your region's letter writing etiquettes before using 'Dear'. You may alternatively use simple Sir/Madam/Ma'am or Respected Sir/Madam.

Body of Application Letter

The body of your application letter allows the employer/HR of the firm, to know what position you are applying for, the reason why employer should shortlist you for an interview, and how will you follow-up.

First Paragraph

In an application letter format, the first paragraph must include details on why you are writing the letter. You must mention the job you are interested in and applying for and how did you find that job listing. You may include the name of a mutual contact/reference, if you have one.

Middle Paragraph(s)

The middle paragraph of a general application letter format should describe what you have to offer the company/employer. You should mention your educational background and how your qualifications are best suited for the job you are applying for. You may write about your past work experiences, and what you gained from it. Do not make it sound like a resume. Remember, that it is an application letter which is a sort of interpretation of a resume.

Final Paragraph

General application format implies that the final paragraph must be a concluding one, in which the applicant should thank the employer for considering him for the job position. Including information about the follow-up is very important and you must do it only in the final paragraph.

Complimentary Close

Faithfully/Sincerely/Respectfully yours,

Signature
