Sample cover letter for Full Time position at TIAA CREFF






Dear Mr. Name,

Madam/ Sir Recruiting Director:

I would herewith like to express my interest in the XYZ opportunity with Company in City.

My name is XX and I am a recent School Graduate (Year), where I earned my MBA degree with focus on Real Estate and Finance. I have over 4 years of relevant professional experience across Asia, Europe and the US, spanning real estate and infrastructure private equity investment advisory, real estate acquisitions, development and project management, as well as marketing and business strategy formulation.

I am very interested in the Global Real Estate Dispositions Associate position, as I believe my skills and qualifications closely match the job requirements. I bring a blend of strong communication skills, cross asset types real estate transactions and brick-and-mortar experience that allows me to better identify, communicate and execute acquisitions and dispositions to capture value, take advantage of market and asset specific opportunities and optimize portfolio performance.

Having successfully sourced, underwritten and facilitated the closure of real estate investment and development projects for over USD 500 Million, I gained valuable transactions experience and honed my valuation and financial analysis skills. I am able to independently build dynamic valuation and waterfall fee-distribution models, assess optimal capital structure, project dividends and cash flows, as well as analyze legal documents and leases and draft deal term sheets. Leveraging my strong communication skills, I summarize the findings of my analysis and the resulting investment thesis in concise investment memoranda and effective PPT presentations.

My resume is attached for a more detailed background and I would welcome the opportunity for a face-to-face meeting to further discuss my qualifications and fit. I very much look forward to learning more about Company Real Estate platform and the opportunity to join and contribute to the team.

Many thanks in advance for your time and consideration!
