Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Bechtel


Graduate Design Engineer

I am a final year MEng student at the University of XXXXX writing to apply to your Mechanical Engineering graduate scheme. I see myself as a keen and enthusiastic individual who has consistently proved to be a successful team member, having worked on multiple group projects during my University program. I feel that I am ready to gain hands on experience in your industry as well as working towards chartered status.

I have been involved in working on live engineering schemes at XXXXX over summer 2011 and 2012, and although this was mainly electrical consultancy in the rail industry I found that I was quick to learn how to use the necessary software and apply it to enable me to complete challenging tasks and meet strict deadlines. I would love to be able to apply myself in an industry much closer to what I have learnt in my degree program and the opportunity that you present at Bechtel Limited is something that I would relish. The international prospects that Bechtel offers is something that particularly excites me, and I know that this could lead to working on diverse projects enabling me to deepen my experience in the industry.

Please see my attached resume. Thank you for taking the time to review my application and I look forward to hearing your response.
