Sample cover letter for Full Time position at IBM



Dear X,

after first hearing about IBM’s graduate scheme I was impressed on how much emphasis is placed on professional development, mentoring and coaching. I see this graduate scheme as an excellent opportunity to utilise my technical skills and further expand my knowledge with the help of this program’s training possibilities. I am holding a Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems with emphasis on process and compliance management and I am currently obtaining a Master’s degree in Management of Information Technology where I am focusing on human computer interaction. Throughout my studies I learned the programming languages Java and Python and I gained profound knowledge of database management in Access and SQL. I have diverse experience in working in IT departments of different companies and industries.

When dealing with challenging problems I am a creative thinker who likes to look out for new ways to solve them. This is why IBM’s business approach of solving problems by using new technologies and promoting innovation is very appealing to me. I am particularly interested in the role of a technical consultant as it gives wide variety in work opportunities especially when dealing with clients from different industries. This role will allow me to use my technical abilities but also being involved in projects at client’s site where my analytical and communication skills will be useful.
