Sample cover letter for Internship position at MTHojgaard


Student assistant

Dear Recruiters,

As a first year master student I am eager to find my place in an engineering company, where I could see how I should use my knowledge in the practice, working on real world problems. That is why I would like to apply to a Geotechnical or Petroleum Engineering related student jobs.

My solid engineering background gives me the knowledge to be able to work properly with technical documentation mostly in the field of geotechnical engineering, from where I could gain the adequate knowledge. I consider myself a reliable person, and as a result of completing five years of bachelor engineering studies I have learned how to organize my duties and meet the deadlines.

Working with Ms Office was a part of my life since high school, which is why I was able to master my skills in Ms Excel. This is always beneficial when I have to work with big amount of data as I found during my former workplace in Romania where I was working as a student assistant.

I consider my best professional skills my ability to learn quickly and to work precisely without direct supervision if given a task. As a president of a student organization I have also demonstrated a sense of responsibility and my capacity to work hard under pressure. That is why I think I am a well prepared applicant.

Thank you very much in advance for your consideration. If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email.
