Hi, this is Laura Turner and today I'm going to talk with you about how to write a letter of intent. A letter of intent is very important for any kind of application, whether it be a school application or an application for a job because this is a chance for you to actually tell people who are going to hire you or who are going to accept you into the program what you're all about and why you want to work there or to study there. First of all your letter of intent should be addressed of course to the correct person, make sure that you put your name and address at the top just like any sort of formal business letter and actually address it to the person that you're going to be interviewing with hopefully. In the letter you should also specify that it is a letter of intent by actually sort of putting that in your title. So you've got here re: letter of intent. Because whenever you're applying for programs or applying for jobs you may need to give them lots and lots of materials and you don't want them to be guessing you know, is this the personal statement or letter of intent, you know, you want it to be looking like a letter of intent rather than anything else, and you want them to know exactly that you've got everything in your application. So letter of intent should be in the letter. And then finally in the bio letter itself you should tell the department or the job why you'd be good for them and of course if you need to do anything else to tell them you know, how to contact you and stuff like that you can also put that in your letter of intent. And that's just some guidelines for writing your letter of intent.
