Industrial attachment  also known by others as internship normally lasts for three moths but the duration differ from institution to institution. Some companies pay for industrial attachment while others do not pay (in an article we  had written earlier, we had provided a list of companies that pay for industrial attachment).  To increase your chances of getting an industrial attachment you have to write an appealing attachment letter.

When writing an industrial attachment application letter or internship application letter be precise and ensure that there are no grammatical or spelling errors in your letter.  Company directors have no  time read very long letters.  Also Ensure that you have attached your CV to accompany your industrial attachment application  letter.  Do not be worried about  the content in your CV, the company directors  understand that you are a student so they don’t expect much in your CV.

How to write application letter: Formal format

  1.  At the top of the application letter should be your address  then followed by the address of company or receiver. It is not advisable write your name at the top of a letter.   (Check for sample application letter below)
  2. There after the salutation.  Use  Sir or Madam if you do not know the name of the person you are writing to.
  3. Reference (This is the title of the application letter) example Application for internship in the engineering department
  4. Opening paragraph: This paragraph should state the position you are applying to or for and how you knew of the position. It should also contain a basic introduction of who you are.
  5. Body paragraph: Explain why you are interested in the position you are applying for, demonstrate your understanding of the position, talk about your qualification and skills in brief as they will be contained in your CV.
  6. Conclusion Paragraph: State that you are ready to take the opportunity fairly. Thank the employer for her/his consideration in advance.
  7. Closing remarks or complimentary remarks: End you letter “Yours Sincerely”  if you have begun it with a person’s title and family name. If you have begun “Dear Sir or Madam”, then end you letter “Yours faithfully”

Sincerely,

(Your handwritten signature)

Your name typed
