How to Write an Expression of Interest Letter for an Internal Job
Expression of Interest Job Application
Dear Job Seeker,
First impressions are everything. If you want to be successful in getting the job then making the right impression from the beginning is very important.
Your expression of interest is the first impression.
First Impression is the Lasting Impression
It has been proven over and over again in numerous studies, that people’s first impression is the lasting impression. This is why it is so important to make an excellent first impression.
How do you do this?
Through a well written expression of interest and cover letter.
In fact, you have a very limited amount of time to make a good impression on someone when you first meet them. You have an even harder time to make an excellent impression through a letter or application.
If you don’t grab their attention in the right way from the very start, they will simply look elsewhere to find the candidate they are looking for.
Your application must stand out from the crowd.
How to Stand Out
The following points below will help you understand how you can stand out from the crowd.
Think About Your Reader First
Put yourself in the shoes of the person reading all of the applications. They will be sorting through many applications of all different levels of quality.
In fact, there could be over 100 applications depending on the job being offered.
Imagine the task they have of sorting through them all?
The first thing you should realize is that you likely have a lot of competition. You must stand out from the crowd if you are even going to ‘get your foot’ in the door to get that coveted interview.
Your application needs to make them take notice. Otherwise it will simply go to the unsuccessful pile.
Your reader has their own concerns and desires. You need to address these in detail if you want them to take action.
This comes down to what you say.
This is very important. You must think carefully when you draft your Expression of Interest so you trigger them to take the desired action you want them to take.
This is easier than it sounds. Simply, put yourself in their shoes and think about what they would want to read. Most people are concerned about their own situation and are looking for people that will assist them in achieving results. Feed that desire.
Check and Double Check
Your spelling and grammar must be 100%. Any silly mistakes and your credibility goes out the window in a flash.
Why is this?
It instantly shows that you have not paid attention to the detail. How will you make a good employee if you cannot even get your spelling right?
This is a no-brainer. You can easily spell check your application.
There is no excuse for having spelling errors in your application.
Have you checked your document or letter?
Spelling is very important and there is no excuse for making spelling mistakes due to the amount of technology you have when it comes to checking your spelling.
Clear and Direct
You must be clear and to the point.
Waffling on is going to get you no-where. You must be very clear and state the facts. Use simple language that is straight to the point.
Most people are busy and it is important that you realize that you have limited time to make an impact in their daily life.
Consider your audience
Do you know who they are? Have you thought about how old they are? Are they educated? What salary bracket are they in?
These things all make a difference about how you draft your letter or expression of interest.
It doesn’t matter if you are applying for a job as an employee or writing a tender for a multi-million dollar project. You must consider your audience or fail miserably.
Following up your letter and application of expression of interest is professional and a critical component of success.
You should follow up within 2 or 3 days to make yourself known and communicate to the person direct. This is not only professional but shows that you have the confidence and ability to be enthusiastic and proactive.
