Letter of Intent, Sample & Format

Letter of intent

Introduction

A letter of intent is a simple letter stating the intentions of the sender on a particular issue; it could be about a job or method that consideration is requested. A letter of intent is usually sent to kick start the process for a particular situation. It is a good way to create a good impression on the recipient. The primary intention here is to show why you are interested in this cause. It could be why you have applied for a particular job or applied to a college etc. The letter of intent is severely checked by the authorities as it shows the candidates interests and aptness in the cause.

The letter should be expressive of yourself and your plans, ideologies, etc. yet it should be simple enough to be understood clearly. Use a clear and straightforward language while writing this letter. Mention briefly about yourself and suppose if it’s for a job, do mention your educational background, work experience, skills and the aptness for this particular job. As the letter of intent will be the first impression that you will make, you should be careful in making the message.
