Cover Letter for a Graduate – Intake
Mr John Brown
222 Every Road
Mrs Jane Smith
Dear Mrs Smith
I refer to your company’s graduate recruitment intake advertised through my university and am very keen to apply for your established graduate management programme. I enclose my CV for your consideration.
During my final year at university, I arranged a work placement in the HR department of XYZ Bank and developed my interpersonal, decision making and analytical skills as a result. I was given the opportunity to assist managers with recruitment activities, provide HR metrics to the department manager and to play a part in disciplinary cases. I believe that these insights and experiences would be of immense benefit in the graduate management positions that you have available.
I am an excellent communicator and have a supportive and focused manner. I am able to handle problems effectively and remain calm when stressful situations arise. I am very enthusiastic about the prospect of learning new skills through the management programme and using them to take on new responsibilities and ensure that my performance is exemplary.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
