Der Aufbau Ihres Bewerbungsanschreibens startet oben links mit Ihren vollständigen Kontaktinformationen. Neben Ihrem Namen gehören auch Anschrift, Telefonnummer und E-Mail Adresse in die Kopfzeile. Unter Ihren Kontaktdaten folgt der Empfänger, ebenfalls möglichst vollständig. Das bedeutet Name des Personalers (falls Sie diesen ausfindig machen können) oder des Unternehmens, gegebenenfalls die Abteilung sowie die Adresse. Achten Sie unbedingt – wie im gesamten Bewerbungsanschreiben – auf die Rechtschreibung, da ein falsch getippter Name keinen guten Eindruck hinterlässt. Ein Beispiel für die Kopfzeile:

Je genauer Sie sich über die Stelle und das Unternehmen informiert haben, desto leichter wird es Ihnen fallen, Ihre eigenen Stärken darauf zu beziehen und Ihren Wunsch, für diesen Arbeitgeber tätig zu werden, zu bekräftigen. Der Vollständigkeit halber sei auch erwähnt, dass Sie natürlich für jede Stelle ein individuelles Schreiben formulieren müssen, um eine realistische Chance auf den Job zu haben. Massenanschreiben werden sofort aussortiert.
thank you for this. i used to be an in-house copywriter back when i was in the philippines and looking back, i have to accept that it was my best work ever (because it didn’t feel like work and was more like a way of life). i decided not to pursue it when i came to canada because i had other things in mind – mainly to build a family. though i am still happily married to the same husband who brought me here almost 15 years ago, we never had kids and i am just living a ho-hum life of a dispensable clerk in an insurance company. i survived two take-overs and am living on a not-so-bad clerk’s salary and the promise of a little pension when i get too old and creaky, but i have to admit that i still miss copywriting (especially when i get reminded of how my job is just sucking the life out of me.) there’s this big chunk of my heart that is raring to copywrite again but with a rusted out experience, i honestly don’t know how and where to start anew.

I’ve done it ! I have been toying with the idea for a year now , I have finally signed up for the Blackford Centre course in copywriting, it was your post that helped me make my final decision. I run two businesses one with my partner, I do all our social media, advertising, website work (including design, self-thought), so I thought why not get a qualification and a better understanding of what I’ve been trying to teach myself with some success and some fails. Thanks and watch this space 🙂
I think each tries to accommodate for a worldwide audience. In general, as a copywriter, you need to be prepared to write for different audiences (and a worldwide audience), especially in this digital age. And the underlying principles of copywriting will be the same, wherever you learn them – but when you come to crafting the copy itself, you’ll just have to be aware of UK/US spelling and phrasing. Good question, Evan
I have a quick question though. Do you know of any copywriting courses that can help me copywrite in English for an audience that has English as their second language? It is a tricky one as obviously not only the audience´s level of English but also their culture and their mother tongue would dramatically influence their interpretation of the copy.
