why is it so hard to make an application letter? sometimes, it's a lot easier making blogs, essays, etc. than making one short application letter.

I also faced similar problem myself. My brain just went blank, and don't know what to say at the moment. I hate to write such letter and trying to sell yourself out so hard. Maybe I should need those writing skill practice, on a daily basis. I rather have to speak out for myself.

there are a lot of sample application letters online. You just need to express yourself and at the same time you must be able to convey the reader that you got what the job needs!

hahaha yes, I agree with you that it is really hard to write application letters compared to writing blogs. You have lots of things to consider when writing an application letter. You have to write all great things about you because you are actually selling yourself to the company. And you also have to personalize your letter based on the position that they are looking for. You have to choose your words carefully and wisely. Try not to bore the audience and try to make the letter good enough for them to keep on reading. Really, it's a tough task to do. =D

yeah its hard to make an application letter than to write a blogs or discussions... but come to think of it, its really not that hard as we think but we wanted our application letter to be the best that's why its been hard for us to make one. When we're done in doing so, we review it and if we found that there is something better than we did, then we will rewrite it again so it becomes hard for us to make an application letter unlike in making blogs, posting discussions, you can write everything you want without hesitating, without thinking that it might not be good... as long as you have your discussions and you have already stated what you wanted to say.. that's already have discussions, so its been easy for us to make a discussion or blog
