Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Rocket Internet



9th May 2013

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am pleased to forward you my CV for the recent job opening in the Finance department of Rocket Internet. I have recently completed an undergraduate honours degree from The University of Manchester in Accounting. I am interested in working for Rocket Internet, as it is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic internet incubators developing web based business around the globe. Working as part of the global network of professional individuals under the umbrella of Rocket Internet would further improve my skills and give a boost to my career.
My professional goal is to develop a career in Finance, which propelled me to study with a foreign university given the amount of diversity and exposure. The degree in Accounting has given me a taste of the financial world which has also reinforced my enthusiasm towards the accountancy profession itself.
Alongside I have completed the knowledge module of ACCA and I look forward to complete the ACCA Qualification by August 2014.

Being a fresh graduate I do not have a particular job experience, but I have held various positions of responsibility during my time in England and the time spent working as an intern in two prestigious organisations. This has enabled me to enhance and demonstrate team leadership, improvisational, communication and organisational skills together with strong commitment, enthusiasm and drive to achieve success. I also have proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite and various internet browsing applications. I believe the mentioned skill set make me a suitable candidate for a role in finance.

My resume has been enclosed for your information. Thank you for considering my application. I look to discuss my motivation and competencies in detail.
Yours sincerely
