Dr Louise Edensor, Senior Lecturer and Campus Programme Coordinator of the International Foundation Programme at Middlesex University Dubai, tells Edarabia how students can make their job application essay stand out from the crowd.

From reading the job specification and ensuring that your application is tailored to what the employer is looking for, to keeping the essay short and concise, highlighting the skills that all employers look for, such as team skills, initiative, communication skills, to the ways in which you can differentiate yourself by including unique experiences and outlining extracurricular activities.

hello I’m Dr. Louise Edensor saw from
Middlesex University on campus program
coordinator and program leader in Dubai
for the foundation program but you’ve
just finished your degree and you’re
looking for your first job how can you
make your application stand out against
everyone else’s well firstly don’t be
tempted to send generic applications to
multiple employers tailor your
application to the job for which you’re
applying and keep it short your
application letter should be no more
than one side of a4 employers are going
to be reading lots of applications and
they need to be able to see at a glance
that you meet the job requirements so
keep it short and punchy secondly take a
look at the job description and the
person specification what kind of skills
and abilities is this employer looking
for emphasize those skills and abilities
in your application letter and prove it
what experience have you had that’s
enabled you to develop those skills and
abilities there are of course skills and
abilities that all employers are looking
for things like interpersonal skills
communication skills and working as a
member of a team so emphasize those
skills on your application form as well
remember that almost everyone who’s
applying for this job is going to have
the same qualifications as you so think
about what else you did whilst you were
studying for your degree did you host
any events did you run any projects did
you work as a counselor or a peer mentor
even things like having interesting
travel experiences might also be
relevant so include those on your
application and finally end your
application on something positive I
would welcome the opportunity to discuss
this matter further for example

The article is straightforward and to the point. The part about generic statements and replies, as well as the variety of skills mentioned, are well taken.
