Paragraph three. You want to match your
personal qualifications exactly with the job requirements now. So you want to get
even more detailed and match it up. We just talked about some of the skills you
have. And of course you don’t just say any skill. You want to focus on the
skills that match the job. But now you go directly and show this skill can do this
in your job. ‘That’s why I’m good for you.’ Let’s look at this example here for
paragraph three. And this person is going to emphasize their English skill: “My major
field of study in college was international trade at The overseas
Chinese Institute of Technology, see enclosed resume. In my English Studies, I
consistently scored above 90. I feel confident that my English skills are
well suited for this position.” So, ‘These are my skills. Here’s evidence of my
skill. And I can use this on your job.’ So this job must be something about using
English. Let’s look at this next example here: “My last two jobs have involved
secretarial works at large shoe manufacturing companies(she enclosed data
sheet).” Data sheet is another way to say resume. “While working full-time, I was
also able to complete my college degree in international trade. I am well versed
in the responsibilities of this job opening and feel very optimistic that I
can make…..a useful contribution to your company.” So
here we can see about your matching. This is, this is me. And this is the company,
And I can do that job. I can do that job. So that’s what you’re doing in this
paragraph–emphasizing that. In paragraph four — very
straightforward. In paragraph four, we’re going to thank the reader. Be very
courteous; be very professional. And we’re going to supply information for further
contact, because we want to encourage future contact. We want to say, ‘Please
contact me in the future’, so you can give some more personal information, here. So
let’s look at an example here. It’s very straightforward: “I look forward to
hearing from you and setting up a time for an interview.” That’s very positive,
look forward. And then here’s there more information. Look at the second example:
“Thank you for taking the time to look over my application.” That’s a nice little
sentence, right there. “Thank you for taking the time… If the opportunity for
an interview should arise, please contact me at my home number.” And then
they even have a time here, “between 12:00 and 4:00 in the afternoon.” So that’s
really nice. Looks very professional that way. And their home number must be inside
the heading of the letter, because that’s where they put your information, the
sender, right? Okay, so I think that the application letter is a little bit hard
to write. Why? Because you want to sell yourself. Be very positive. But you must
keep it short. And there are some things you have to do, like you have to say
thank you at the end. At the beginning, you have to say how did you find out
about us, how do you know us. So you don’t have a lot of space. So you don’t want to
talk about many things in your family or your history. You want to focus on a
couple of skills, and show me you really know the skills. So many applicants I’ve seen
say, ‘I can use a computer. I can use word. I can use Excel.’ That doesn’t tell me
anything. I need to know exactly what it is that you can do that others are not
as good as you. Inside our book, we have a few examples
here. Please take a chance to look at those. And inside our book, we also
have resumes which include the whole example of the dates, remember? The last
date goes first; the first date goes last. [Music]
For your assignment, let’s try to write 100 words for an application letter. Now,
it’s going to be a little bit challenging, but I want you to give it a
try. Keep it simple. 100 words, okay, not too complicated. Just give it a try, and then
we’ll give you some feedback on that. For this assignment,
let’s go ahead and look at our book, Exercise E, which is on page 282– 282. And
in this, we have five job openings. I want you to apply for one. There are five here;
apply for one. Just pick one that you think matches you
better, and apply for that. Use your real information and see what happens. 100
words, keep it simple; try your best. Good luck!
