Lots of students commonly worry about writing their letter of interest, however its nothing you need to worry about - it is just like any other letter of interest for a job Start by including your name and contact details Dear Insert name of Head of Midwifery here I am a final year student based at X and would be very interested in working as part of your team at X. Then discuss why you want to work there - why are you applying to that trust as opposed to anywhere else? It looks good on you if you show you've done your homework and researched that trust State what aspects of midwifery motivate and interest you. Tell them why you'd be a great addition to their team. State whether you would prefer part-time / full-time hours Then say that you would be happy to discuss your application further in person or via the telephone and include your numbers. This is a rough guide of what you need to include, but remember it is important to make it your own. And it goes without saying: make sure you let all of us at SMNET know how you get on!
