I have currently just completed my degree at the University of Portsmouth and this cover letter is to express my interest with regards to the position that you have advertised.
The attached CV highlights my potential and elaborates on my relevant experience and skills. I consider the skills I have gained from my alternative work experience to be of great benefit to a company such as yours. I have developed excellent project management, interpersonal and business communication skills with the understanding required to remain highly focused and exceptionally productive in fast-paced, high pressure settings. I am a hands-on member of staff and a critical thinker who can quickly evaluate tasks, draw from a wide range of valuable experiences and produce significant contributions. Throughout my degree I have learned to enjoy fast paced projects where deadlines are a priority and handling multiple jobs has become a natural process, I enjoy a challenge and take pride in my work, especially when allowing my creativity to benefit a team as a whole. My previous experience of working for large companies and practical knowledge are well suited to the goals of your organisation. I am competent with all computer programmes including Microsoft Office.
I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
