what do i need to do differently for a letter of application? = letter of intent
"a letter of application is a letter of transmittal for the resume, but it is also a place where you can highlight your capabilities and catch an employer's interest. ... you can use your letter of application to point out how you could fit into the organization and why it would be to their advantage to hire you."
in the beginning of the letter, mention your knowledge of the organization and that you would like to work for them. in the middle, emphasize your experience and education to the reader. in the close of the letter, mention your resume and references and let them know your availability for an interview.
