Subject: Application for position of Chemical Engineering Assistant
Dear Mrs. Smith,
I write to introduce myself, James Taylor for the advertised position of Chemical Engineering Assistant at Rochester Institute of Technology. I have also enclosed my resume along with this cover letter with more details on my career background, for this great opportunity.
Over the past four years of my career as a Chemical Engineering Assistant at Kelly Engineering Resources, I have helped in many research and analysis programs; as well as learned a great deal from senior Engineers. During my time pursuing a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering, I not only learned a great deal about various structures, interactions, and scientific histories on the subject; but also, had opportunity to work hands on in a lab at Chemical And Bio-molecular Engineering Laboratory, as a part of this coursework. In this internship position, I helped scientists gather data, brainstorm hypotheses, store and organize research materials.
I am now seeking to expand my knowledge in Chemical Engineering, and believe that your company would be a great opportunity for this-as you are one of the leading Chemical Engineering labs in the country. I ask that you review this cover letter and resume at your convenience to learn more about my background. Thanks so much for your time.
