Most job applications comprise a covering letter and CV. The letter should make the employer want to invite you for an interview. It should not go into too much detail about experience and qualifications; this is provided in the CV.
Your CV should consist of two or, even better, one A4 sheet. Previous periods of employment should be arranged in reverse chronological order. This also applies to the section that covers your education and training.
An application is usually written in Slovenian, but for workers from other countries, it may be written in another language, most frequently English, German or Italian, especially for cross-border positions or when applying for a job in an international company.
If making a spontaneous application, consider the following opening suggestions.
• 'I have been a customer of yours for a long time and I think I know your field of work very well. That is why I would like to join your company.'
• 'Perhaps in the near future you will need a colleague with the experience and abilities that I have. Please allow me to introduce myself'
Go on to list your professional training, employment experience, skills, achievements and knowledge of foreign languages. Explain why you believe you could be useful.
