about this template.

Normally, most job applications begin by applying to a role that has been advertised, but that isn’t always the case. Some applicants start by sending a letter of interest to companies - a sort of cold calling approach to job hunting. This is very different to responding to a job advertisement so it’s important to bear a few things in mind.

As there is no specification to follow, you can’t be sure of exactly what skills the company requires. In this instance, it’s vital to really do your research on the company and think about the type of experience that would be relevant. Champion your own skills while keeping it fairly broad.

In a letter of interest your passion and enthusiasm for working for a company really needs to come across, it’s a good idea to include examples of projects or clients that you’ve worked on which you think would be of interest to the organisation. It needs to be clear that you’ve done your research and you’d like a position at that specific company, not just any company.

Approaching a company with a letter of interest is a bold move, however this could be rewarded with your dream job. If you’re interested in approaching a company, download our free Letter of Interest Cover Letter Template to make sure you make a good first impression.
