Letter Of Application (Bewerbungsbrief)


Note: When applying for a job, always try to find out the person responsible for employing the new staff member - starting a letter of application with "Dear Sirs or Mesdames" doesn't really show an interest in the company you are applying for.

getting started / showing interest in the job you are applying for:

describing your experience:

explaining your current situation / employment:

"selling yourself" - highlight your special knowledge / skills / key strengths:

closing sentences:

complimentary closes:

Note: When you start a letter with the most formal expression (e.g. "Dear Sirs"), you must use "Yours faithfully" as complimentary close. Likewise, whenever you start a letter with "Dear Mr ...", you have to end the lette writing "Yours sincerely". Use mnemonics to learn thes facts, e.g. "Whenever you start a letter with an "S" (Dear Sirs), you may not close it with an "S" (Yours Sincerely)".
