Suggestions for Letter of Application
• Make it one page long.

let there be NO mistakes in them.

person in the company; if need be, make a call to find out the
name of the person to whom to mail the letter and resume.
• Mail the letter and resume in an envelope that is large enough
that the letter and resume do not need to be folded.
• A day or two before the deadline for sending in the letter of
application, call the company and verify that the letter has been
received. Prepared by: Dipakbhai V.Parikh (M.9426410319)
