Sample cover letter for Full Time position at TomTom


GNSS engineer

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to apply for the GNSS engineer position, which was advertised in TomTom’s careers website. I am motivated to apply for this position because of relevant professional and academic experience in GNSS. I believe that my profile suits this role, and I would be a strong candidate for this role.

As far as the job requirements are concerned, I am a researcher at the Engineering College, investigating the effects of multipath on GNSS receivers. I have developed custom algorithms and tools to simulate GNSS receiver behaviour and validate code in Matlab. I have also used extensively GNSS receivers to capture data in the field. 

I have also got project management experience in technical support and customer service projects, as you can see in my attached resume. Moreover, I have excellent interpersonal and presentation skills, and I have given many presentations to professional audiences. 

I am very excited about this role and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss about how I can contribute to this role. Please find attached my resume for further information and my contact details. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours faithfully,
