Sample Letters of Application -
Employment and College Admission

Over the years I have been asked to write and edit numerous application letters for people applying for employment or for admission to college programs.

Also known as letters of application, or application cover letters, these letters should normally be short one-pagers. When job-related, they are usually accompanied by a resume or c.v. In college admission situations, the application letter normally covers an overall application package, as per the requirements of the institution.

Below are seven or eight samples of real-life application letters, that were written for actual people in the process of seeking employment or applying for college programs. These examples should give you a good idea as to how to write an application cover letter for whichever position or program you are applying.
