Dear [HR Director],
When writing a job application letter for tour guide the middle paragraphs give you the opportunity to the organization/company what you’ve got to offer. Start off by stating you’re involvement with the tourism and travel industry. Specify what departments or fields within the travel industry have you’ve been a part of.
For example, education, tour management, promotions and environment sustainability. Specify any of the organizations names which you’ve earned experience and knowledge in. List some of your responsibilities and describe how it’s relevant to the work you are applying for. A brief anecdote should be provided to emphasize a point or a skill relevant to the position you are applying.
List a few of your personal qualities that makes you stand out. Include any internship experiences, coursework certifications, language skills, volunteering, or co-curricular activities, etc. Be specific and describe to the company how you skills will suit the company’s needs.
The last paragraph will describes how and when you will follow up. It is your responsibility to follow up unless the internship/job description specifically states no phone calls or email follow up. If emailing your documents, follow-up is usually 24 – 48 hours; if sending documents by mail follow up is usually in one week.
