Sample cover letter for Full Time position at google


data analyst

I am interested in the Data Scientist position with Google and I am confident that I would be a valuable addition to your team.

For the last five years I have worked in a similar position at Facebook where I was responsible for the analysis of raw data and also for contributing to the creation of data products such as Facebook's Graph Search. My time at Facebook taught me how to identify and answer industry-relevant questions and then how to use that information to create a cutting edge advantage for my team in the marketplace.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science that I earned from DeVry University was instrumental to my success during my time as a data scientist at Facebook. Along the way to earning my degree I also developed a strong background in mathematics that has served me well in my pursuit to advance the interests of my employers. My experience at Facebook and my educational background make me a good fit for this position as does my personal passion for logical problem solving.

Your time and consideration are appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your attention
