It is advisable that for each job a customized application should be prepared instead of sending standard letter kept prepared for the purpose. The advertisement should be studied thoroughly to find out the specifics of the requirement and the contents of the application may be molded accordingly. Also it should be clearly understood that since normally a very large number of applications are received against any advertised vacancy, the managers have very little time available with them for going through the contents of each and every application. Utmost care should be taken in weeding out even the minutest mistakes, particularly the spellings and grammar glitches in the jobs applications. Due attention should be paid to the formatting of the application to make the application attractive to catch attention of the manager. There should not be any use of white ink etc. for making corrections in the application. In general since run of mill kind of applications are more likely to fail to draw attention of the manager, extra care should be paid in preparing jobs applications in the prevailing scenario of cut throat competition.
