Letter writing sample

Letter writing samples are becoming a common request from employers.

The short listed candidates are generally analysed using graphology in order to further limit the number of candidates that are called for an interview.

  • Letter writing sample should be between 2 and 5 pages long.
  • Write about something that is related to work; this is your chance to write about your achievements. Tip: Avoid creative writing!
  • Get it as close to perfect as possible, avoid correction fluid such as 'tipex' or other corrective materials.
  • Make sure the letter writing sample is grammatically sound and has no spelling mistakes.
  • Submit your own work and make sure you know what you have written about.
  • If the job application does not specify to submit a written cover letter or written sample do not send one.
