Application for “Development trainee in  Electric/Electronics”

Dear Sir/Madam,

I feel immense pleasure in applying for a job as a trainee at your prestigious, globally known and successful organization. I found this position on your website using the Job Locator. When researching your company I was impressed by the significant opportunities for training and advancement and I’m eager to begin my career with such a position as soon as possible.

I have completed an international master’s degree programme in sensor systems technology and a bachelor’s degree programme in electronics engineering. My first exposure to automotive industry was in 2014 when I joined TRW Automotive GmbH as an intern for six months in Duesseldorf. During internship alongside with regular tasks I took an initiative and drafted a master's thesis proposal. It was later approved by my supervisor after some improvements. It took six months for completion. This one year of a combination of active team and independent work in an intercultural working environment has not only broadened my knowledge of automotive sector bus it has also improved my communication skills, flexibility and overall confidence. I have been actively looking for a job in automotive sector and I can assure you that I have all the right skills and experience that you're looking for in an ideal candidate.

I am able to take on the responsibility of this position immediately, and have the enthusiasm and determination to ensure that I make a success of it. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and will appreciate if you could arrange an interview.

Thank you so much for considering my application.
