How to write a letter of enquiry

Sometimes even though the organization has not advertised a vacancy they may have vacant positions that need to be filled. You will be able to find out if there is indeed a vacancy by sending them a letter of enquiry. Here is a brief outline for drafting a letter of enquiry.

Opening paragraph

In the opening paragraph give a brief introduction of yourself and explain why you are writing the letter. Let them know what kind of position you are looking for. You must also state why you are interested in working with them and how you found out about them.

Paragraph 2

In the second paragraph, clearly mention your academic qualifications and work experience. You may also add any relevant details that might improve your chances of being considered for the job.

Paragraph 3

In the third paragraph, inform them that you have included your CV. You may also draw their attention to particularly important points you would like them to consider.

Closing paragraph

In the closing paragraph, restate your interest in working for the company, thank them for taking the time to read your letter and explain your availability for interview. You may also make it clear that you are interested in being considered for vacancies that might arise in the future if none exists at the moment.
