How to E-mail a Letter of Interest for a Job


A letter of interest is an unsolicited letter to a prospective employer conveying your desire to work with them at their company. Your letter should be concise, well written and maintain a professional tone. It should illustrate your current job and the skills you use daily to complete it. Explain your mission and your professional goals, and let this prospective employer decide if they want to take a chance on you and invite you in for an interview.

Things You'll Need

  • Scanned image of your signature
  • Photoshop
  • Word processing program
  • Type your letter in Word or a word processing program of your choice. Reread your letter to ensure clarity and correct grammar.

  • Import your letter into a new Photoshop document. Place your digital signature at the bottom of your letter, below your typed signature.

  • Flatten the image and save the document as a JPEG.

  • Open your email account and choose to compose an email.

  • Address the email. Enter the your prospective employer's email address and write the position for which you're applying in the subject line of the email.

  • Attach the file to your email. Include a short introduction in the body of your email, telling the addressee to please see the attached file and send the email.

Tips & Warnings

  • Attaching a letter of interest this way allows you to use your own signature, making your letter appear original to the company to which you are applying.
