Cara Menulis Surat Lamaran Kerja

Surat lamaran kerja atau istilah kerennya ‘cover letter’ adalah jenis surat yang sangat populer. Seperti namanya, surat ini digunakan untuk mengajukan lamaran kerja ke suatu perusahaan atau instansi. Mengingat kadar kepentingan dan keresmiannya, surat lamaran kerja tentu harus dibuat dengan format sedemikian sehingga dapat dicerna dengan baik oleh penerima yang dalam hal ini adalah perusahaan atau instansi. Selain itu, keberterimaan surat lamarana kerja menjadi salah satu faktor penentu diterima atau tidaknya lamaran.

Tata cara penulisannya barangkali sudah diajarkan di sekolah sejak SMP. Yang akan dibawakan disini adalah format yang diajarkan di mata kuliah Etika Rekayasa dan Kapita Selekta.

Paragraf pertama diisi dengan maksud dan alasan dibuatnya surat.
Paragraf kedua diisi dengan wawasan kita tentang perusahaan atau instansi dan kebutuhannya
Paragraf ketiga diisi dengan spesifikasi yang diminta perusahaan atau instansi dilanjutkan dengan paparan bahwa diri kita memenuhi spesifikasi tersebut

Paragraf terakhir diisi dengan penutup plus melampirkan kontak kita.

Sebagai contohnya adalah seperti berikut:

Dear MR Winterburn:


I am writing to apply for the position as RF Design Engineer that you advertised on the internet at the ic-resources website. I will be graduating from Bandung Institute of Technology with a major in Electrical Engineering in July of 2009 and am currently exploring employment opportunities in my area of interest.


Looking at your website I learned that you are looking for individuals who have good communication skills with good team work and self motivation. I was also impressed by the company’s achievements in RF engineering and the results driven values that seemed to motivate the future of the company.


The whole thing was your company’s need for RF Engineer. I already have experience with RF WiMAX design and I hope to further my experience with the recent acquisition of RF Product Development with some verification and problem solving on EGPRS and WCDMA mobile phone. In addition, I am also familiar with Cadence Virtuoso, HSPICE and HSIM simulator as well as design at 35 um technology.


Enclosed you will find a copy of my resume for review. I will call in a week to ten days to confirm that you have received this and answer any questions you have regarding my qualifications. At that time, I would also like to make an appointment to speak with one of your representatives to discuss opportunities at Radio Century Inc for someone with my experience and training. If you would like to speak with me sooner, please feel free to call me at +628131723xxxx or send email to muttakin.imamul@gmail.com. I look forward to speaking with you soon.


Sincerely,

Imamul Muttakin
