Human Resource Office Head
United Engineers Residential Company
New York, NY 10945
Dear Mr. Li:
Mr. Samuel Johnson informed me about the vacancy in your company. As a respond to it, I would like to express my interest to apply in the United Engineers Residential Company as a materials engineer.
In my past working experiences, I worked as an assistant engineer for two years. Later than that, I had a one-year experience in a geological firm in Los Angeles City as an on-the-job trainee. During my college years, I belonged to an active student organization of engineers where I played an active part in the engineering projects committee. I finished my undergraduate course with flying colors. In the mean time, I am a part-time student in masters in civil engineering.
It would be my pleasure to discuss with you how my past work and extracurricular activities will help in your company. I will be waiting for your response. Thank you and more powers.
