NUC Recruitment 2016 Sample Application Letter


A good number of you have been sending me mails and asking me a lot of questions on the ongoing National Universities Commission (NUC) recruitment. If you have nagging questions, you’re likely to find this post useful.

Some of the questions include:

  • Please the 10 copies of our CVs, are we sending them in 10 different brown envelopes at the same time or in one brown envelope?
  • Please can you show me a sample application letter to apply for the National Universities Commission job
  • Please I need to know if the handwritten applications is to be on a full scalp sheet or A4 plain paper

Useful answers to your questions:

  •   I don’t think the type of paper really matters. However, my advice would be for you to use a plain sheet of paper. It looks more professional.

  •  I’d advise you to bundle your CVs and application in one envelope. It’s neater and less cumbersome, as a result, makes work easier for whoever will collect it from you.
