Dear Ms. Morris,
I am writing to submit my application for the job of Management Trainee with your company. Please consider my resume and letters of reference. I am sure you will agree I am very well qualified for the job.
I possess an undergraduate degree in business, with a focus on marketing. I am currently employed by a major cosmetics and personal care products company located in Houston. My plans are to enrol in a graduate studies program within the marketing domain, and I am looking for work closer to North Carolina State University, where I have been accepted for the master’s program. I am hoping to move in the next several months, in order to have time ahead to get settled before classes begin next fall.
In addition to my formal education, I have learned a great deal from on-the-job training. I have also been fortunate to be involved in a peer challenge program within the company, which matches employees from different departments who have similar skill sets and experience. We then set challenges for each other and oversee the peer’s performance of tasks unfamiliar to him. I have learned a great deal about my own strengths and weaknesses from participating in this program. I have come a long way in terms of leadership skills and ability to direct others. I have also learned to give more constructive feedback, and also to use feedback to set my own personal goals for self-improvement.
I would love to discuss my credentials with you in person. Would you please call me? The number is (555)-555-5555.
