Hiring Manager

5th December 2016

Dear Sir/Madam

I am currently in my 1st year studying towards a  ---------- in ------------------------ at the University of --------------.

I am applying for this placement as I find the work at --------------- to be very interesting. ---------------s reputation within the defence technology industry and its advancement of transformative technology to society and industry strengthened my desire to work for the company. I believe I will learn a lot from working with your company as I wish to be involved in the design of software when I graduate and thus feel that this placement is perfect for me.

The modules that I have covered this year have given me a good knowledge of both analogue and digital electronics as well as computer architecture and programming. I believe I would be suitable for --------------- as I have a great enthusiasm for electronics and enjoy learning outside of class. This placement will also help me to improve my teamwork and communication skills through engineering projects with other colleagues.

I believe that I would be a great addition to the company and that you would benefit from the quality of work that I would bring to the company. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely
