Sample cover letter for Internship position at Doğuş Construction Team

POSITION:

Engineering Intern

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to enquire for any internship vacancies in your Egineering team, starting July 2015 for the duration of up to 12 months. The diversity of my academic experience, along with the ability to easily grasp complex concepts lead me to believe that I can be an asset to the Doğuş Construction Team of in the completion of any business objectives. I enclose my CV for your further information.

As you will see from the attached resume, my life has undergone variety of changes in the past cou-ple of years. My academic work in both almae matres has allowed me to tackle scientific problems on a wide range of subjects and essentially, find an interest in Geotechnical and furthermore Engineering Pro-ject Management. My extracurricular activities have increased my perceptiveness and, frankly, have helped me develop my communication skills and shape me into a self-confident and responsible young woman.

Additionally, being an engineer at heart, I can easily describe myself as an effective problem solver: I have a non-linear understanding of the world and I have a knack of digging deeper and follow my in-stincts when dealing with a question. That as well as my multidisciplinary approach have put me in various positions of responsibility - I was tasked with leading the negotiations of a scholarship at my university and on multiple occasions I pitched proposals on behalf of the Student’s Union.

I am currently looking for a year-long placement that will help me explore the sphere of Civil Engineering further during my gap year (2015/2016). My interest in the engineering design process and the question of optimization of cost, quality and time make the possibility of working on one of your impressive projects a stepping stone for an exciting future career. In truth, I find the changing face of Turkey truly fascinating and I would love to be part of that if posible.

In closing, I would be delighted to speak with you further regarding a career opportunity. In case you do not have any suitable openings at the moment, I would be grateful if you would keep my CV on file for any future possibilities.

Sincerely,
