Subject: Application for position of Civil Engineering
Dear Mr. Griffin,
My name is Ruth Griffin, and I write to introduce my career qualifications in response to your advertisement for a qualified Civil Engineering professional for your company. I am very eager to learn more about what you are seeking, and offer my credentials as listed in this cover letter and resume.
You will find in the enclosed resume that I recently graduated with a Civil Engineering degree from Cleveland State University, with the hopes of becoming a Civil Engineer at a top ranked company in the area. After careful research, I have found that your company, a leader in Civil Engineering technology, is the perfect match for these goals; and you are hiring.
During college, I was able to be a part of a number of structured and team oriented Civil Engineering experiments and projects, and in that time, gained considerable knowledge of how theory and science can be applied to create process improving products for our world. I am looking to your company to help me apply this education into hands on success, and I believe that working in a plant such as yours will be a very fulfilling and enriching job.
Please contact me after you have read this cover letter and resume.
