Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Siemens


Business Investor

Dear Mr. Curtis,

I am writing to you on the recommendation of David McLean, Assistant Manager in your securities department.

A year ago, Mr. McLean was on a banking course here with me in Bremen, and he suggested that I should contact your company and mention his name. He told me that you often employ people from other countries on a one-year basis, if they have had banking experience:

I am a 28 year-old employee of the International Bank in Bremen, working in the Overseas Securities Department, and have been with this organisation for the past two years, since graduating from the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven in 20... with a degree in Business Administration.

As well as speaking fluent English, I also have a very good working knowledge of French.

In my present position as Assistant to the Director of the International Securities Department, I deal with a wide range of investments from companies throughout Europe, buying shares and bonds for them on a worldwide basis.

My bank encourages all its staff to spend a year abroad for the experience of working with different systems and my Director would be willing to give you a reference.

I would like to spend a year or so in the UK to gain experience in securities investments with a British bank and in exchange I think my experience and languages would prove useful to your organisation.

If you think it would be possible to offer me a position, please send me an application form where I will be able to give you more specific details about myself.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours sincerely,

Marcus Bauer
