Dear Mr Beaver,
I am writing to introduce myself to you as an MS student at the University of Dallas, Texas. In response to your advertisement in the local Employment Weekly for an electrical engineer, I wish to apply for the said post.
I have enclosed my resume, but would like to briefly mention here that I have a very strong academic background in engineering combined with over two years’ work experience in this field. My recent internship at National Tech, Austin, allowed me to gain further knowledge and develop my technical skills. I believe that I could make a significant and valuable contribution in your firm.
I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my education and experience with you. I will contact you tomorrow morning to talk about the possibility of arranging an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
