First job cover letter example

Dear Mr Jones,

Please find enclosed my CV in application for the post of marketing assistant as advertised in the Guardian on 3rd January.

As you can see from my CV, I am a recent graduate with all the required qualifications for the role. During my university course, I also gained first-hand experience in a marketing company through a work placement, which lasted 9 months. This opportunity allowed me to put my theoretical learning into practice and gain an invaluable insight into the industry. After completing the work placement I also secured the opportunity of a summer job with the same company after impressing the project manager.

Being extremely motivated to start my professional career in marketing as soon as possible, my ambition to succeed on a national and international scale match those of Star Marketing, which has expanded and consolidated there position in many emerging markets over the past few years. Having spent a gap year travelling around North America and travelling extensively through Western Europe I also have an encompassing cultural knowledge of the international markets in which Star Marketing works.

I would be delighted to have the opportunity to work in your company and I hope that I will have the opportunity to meet you in person and demonstrate my confidence that I would be able to excel in an environment like Star Marketing. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions regarding my application

Yours faithfully
