Job application email examples – email cover letter samples

In the digital age, the application email is gradually replacing the cover letter when the latter is not expressly requested.

Unlike the one before it, the text of an application email is more concise and the style more direct: since recruiters and employers do not spend a lot of time on each application received, we go straight to the point.

Your message will be read before your resume, so special care will be taken with the content, form, and spelling.
