Dear ?,

I am very interested in applying for the position of ? as within ?, advertised on ?. I believe that my background and qualifications, which I summarise below, match with your requirements. I also enclose a copy of my resume which gives you more specific information as to my background and accomplishments.

I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from City University Bellevue USA (June 2000) and I have recently completed my master's degree in General Management at the same university (March 2003). As a result of these course I have developed my abilities of analysis, process-management and negotiation, which I believe are key to the role of ? as the practice continues to develop.

I have also been able to develop my abilities in the workplace, both with [name of the company] and before. During my studies at City University, I worked for a personnel agency ([name of the company]) as an assistant to a recruitment consultant. During that time I learned how to communicate effectively with clients and developed my ability to work independently. In addition, I have four years of experience as a salesperson with Philips. Therefore, I believe I could make a significant contribution to ? by utilizing my experience of negotiating with dealers and learned to work as part of a team.

Your company has an excellent reputation for customer satisfaction, and I know that the combination of my experience, education, and motivation to excel will make me an asset to your company.

Look forward to discussing this with you in the near future. Should you have any questions, you may reach me via phone ?.

Many thanks for your time and consideration.
