Tips for writing Letter of Interest

Here are a few tips to increase the chances of employers hearing back.

  • Investigate the entity

Getting a thorough understanding of the organization, its priorities and principles will make the letter seem more important to the public. You can tie your own core beliefs into your motivations for showing interest in the business by reviewing your mission statement, social media, recent press releases and other company news.

  • Network

Finding ties that work in the business to which you send a letter of interest will help you get other tips to make your letter stand out.
