Re: Shell Graduate Program

Dear Sir/Ma,

I am writing to apply for the Shell Graduate Program, as advertised on

I have a strong interest in administrative management, where I hope to put my interests and learning into practice.

I am a 23 years old B. Agric graduate from University of Ilorin with a 2nd Upper Division. Specifically, I am interested in a career with your company because of the high reputation of your graduate training scheme, and your commitment to giving new recruits early responsibility.

During my time as a student I was an intern at Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, here I was required to work as part of a team and dealt with administrative duties.

In addition, I am a keen observer and deem observation as the best form of training.

To support my application, I have enclosed a copy of my resume. I believe that I have the potential to be a valuable member of the Shell team and would welcome the opportunity to discuss my application in more detail at an interview.

Thank you in advance.

Yours Sincerely,


Toluwalashe U. Olajide
