Hvad skal en god ansøgning indeholde, og hvor lang skal den være?

Ansøgningen er argumentet for, at du skal have dette job. Derfor er det vigtigt at vise både din interesse i virksomheden, jobbet/arbejdsopgaverne og at du har de rette kompetencer. <br />Du kan stille dig selv spørgsmålet: Hvad får virksomheden ud af at ansætte mig i dette job? – både på den faglige side i forhold til arbejdsopgaverne og på den personlige side i forhold til samarbejde og relationer. Altså, hvad vil jeg kunne bidrage med? Når du har fundet svarene på spørgsmålene, skriver du det i ansøgningen, og hvis du kan flette et par korte eksempler ind eller nævne nogle bestemte situationer til at underbygge enkelte af dine kompetencer, vil det være rigtig fint. <br />Søger du job langt fra din bopæl eller i den anden ende af landet, kan det være en god idé at skrive, hvad du tænker henholdsvis om transporttiden, og om du har planer om at flytte. <br />Ansøgningen skal helst være 1 side. Er du presset for plads, så kan den fylde 1½ side. Det er bedre, at den fylder 1½ side, hvis alternativet er, at du skriver med en lille skrifttype og uden afsnitsmellemrum for at presse det hele ind på 1 side. Tænk på læseren, det skal være nemt at læse din ansøgning.
