So, you think that writing letters is hard? In a way it’s like dealing with a Dear John letter but it’s a bit more complicated than that. An intentional letter is exactly what you just wrote: it shows you that you intend to do something. It could be applying for a job or blowing the enemy to kingdom come!

So grab your pens and papers cause it’s time to lock n’ load!

#1. Determine
Before you write, you gotta determine who’s gonna receive the letter. It must include a name, address, number and even a title, like “Mr.”, “Ms.”, “Mrs.” Or even “Dr.”. It shows you’re well learned and knowledgeable about the individual and the company and it also shows a manner of politeness and courteousness. Also, his or her rank may be necessary to add to your bonus points. 

#2. Introduction
You gotta introduce yourself first otherwise, the person on the receiving end is going to think that you’re a spy or someone who wants to hurt them. “Gunny, what’s in the introduction?” Well, grab the popcorn, couch potato, cause I’m getting there. You need to add a career field or organization or make sure the letter of intent addresses the specific institution or organization you want to enter into. Further, to add to the spice, make sure it has a specific skill set and you’ll be on your way to victory! Hoorah!

#3. Specifics
Get into the tiny, little details of your infinite knowledge and wisdom and list them down on the paper. Tell them why you’re writing it and what you have that could make you a valuable asset to the company. Follow these and you’ll survive like the way Scout Snipers survive the wild.

#4. Response
This might sound insulting as you’re making them respond to you but in a sense, that’s how you get through in life. But tell them politely, like, telling them that you’d want an interview.
