    Applying for my first full time job..., this might sound like a really stupid question, but just unsure of when and how formal to be...

    I have got an apprenticeship job description saying email .... for an application form.

    Do I just send an email saying: please send an application form to...

    OR

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am interesting in the IT apprenticeship, please send an application form to:...

    Yours Faithfully,

    Ok, thank you!

    Was just unsure, because I've never done this sort of stuff before!

    Thanks again

    It states to ask for an application form on the job description, maybe that would be more detailed than a CV.
