DIRECTORATE-GENERAL FOR EDUCATION AND CULTURE
I am sending you this letter along with my CV to clarify my interest for the position .....
Having completed my primary education in The American College of...., my university studies in the field of economics and my master studies in the field of Business Administration, all with distinction grades, granted scholarships and ranked first, I have proved that I have managed to excel in every academic venture and I am therefore strongly convinced that I could be a valuable asset to your team.
Furthermore, having graduated from the National School of Public Administration and Local Government as an elite public servant and being employed in the field of vocational training for adults for the last 5 years, I would be delighted to bring this knowledge in your team and to see how it can be implemented in an EU-level, also exchanging best practices with peers from all over the world. In my current position, I am specifically responsible for the overall procedure for implementation of training programmes (planning, management, evaluating, re-planning), and I have acquired skills that could be well applied in the EAC A3 position.
I am also strongly motivated to apply for this particular position, since I myself have participated in Erasmus Programme when I was a student in University and I am therefore higly sensitive to similar actions.
Last, but not least, you will note from my CV that I have a very strong personal interest in any issue related to volunteerism, student exchanges, sports, and lifelong learning. This, along with my expertise in the field of vocational training and adult learning, my rich experience in travelling abroad and participating in various volunteering programmes, as well as my first-hand experience of the Erasmus Programme, can help me better understand the context your Unit operates in and give me the confidence that I can perform my best in this specific vacancy of the European Commission.
