Date: 17th September 2013
[Attention. Capture attention in paragraph 1]
In your job posting, you indicated that you were looking for a talented engineering graduate with
with attention to detail, creativity, excellent problem skills and a good awareness of relevant
regulations. Well, I have a 2:1 degree in Engineering and I spent a year in industry working for a
leading civil engineering firm where I was required to assist engineers with aspects of drawing
and design – and during this time I demonstrated all the required skills for the role. Please find my
CV and Cover letter to both apply for and justify why I am suited to this role.
[Interest. Develop interest by showing how you match their requirements in paragraph 2]
Your job advert asked for candidates who have can combine creativity and ambitious design but
who can also conform to industry standard safety specifications. For my third year project I came
up with a radical bridge design and I enjoyed the challenging of making it comply with safety
regulations. You can see a full list of my designs on my website here and I will be pleased to talk
about my designs at interview.
[Desire. Build desire by creating a sense of scarcity paragraph 3]
I have 2.5 combined years of work experience and internships in engineering firms and I
accumulated more engineering experience than the typical engineering graduate.
[Culture fit. Show how you fit the team culture paragraph 4]
I noticed on your company blog that your engineering team are keen climbers and mountaineers. I
also enjoy mountaineering and regularly climb at Symond’s Yat in Gloucestershire and so I think I
may have a lot in common with your team.
[Call to action in paragraph 5]
As you can see I am excited about this opportunity and am keen to show that I am the graduate
who can really make a difference to your business. I do look forward to hearing from you!
