Sample Job Application Email Templates

We read about drafting an important subject line for your job application email and what should your job application email contain.


Below are some sample job applications that you may want to use. Remember, you can take ideas and even use some of your own when writing a professional email. Hiring managers are attentive to your writing or typing skills, and some of them even try and find as many errors as possible to exclude your profile. If they cannot find errors and your profile matches, you automatically become a potential candidate they would want to invite for an interview.

When you are referred

Sometimes, the most successful way to secure a job is to be referred by a friend or acquaintance who works at a company. In this situation, it is best to include their information in your email. This will make your application stand out.
