Employment letters consist mainly of letters written by job applicants to firms and vice versa. For a job applicant, the employment letter and its enclosures are of utmost importance. This is because, in many cases, a prospective employer knows nothing about a job applicant except what is presented in the applicant’s letter. A shoddily written or ill-prepared letter almost certainly will be thrown away or kept at the bottom of the pile of applicants’ letters. While a well-written letter does not guarantee an interview with the prospective employer, at least the applicant stands a better chance of being called for an interview at all.
