Dear Mr. Recruit,

I am very interested in talking with you about employment as a project engineer with B.I.G. Geotechnical Services and hope you will give my candidacy close consideration.

As a recent graduate of Your City University, I have proven my ability to set and reach significant career-oriented goals. Some of these include:

  • Extensive summer fieldwork as an intern with XYZ Corp.
  • Achievement of a 3.76 GPA over my four - year B.Sc.
  • Two years of active peer advocacy on YCUís Student Liaison Committee.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. If my qualifications interest you, I would be delighted to meet with you to further explore opportunities with your company. I look forward to hearing from you.
