Dear Ms………: [Formal greeting] [return x 2]
I wish to apply for the Environment, Safety, and Health Co-op position which ABC Corp [Make purpose clear at the start.]. posted on Clarkson University’s e-Recruiting website. Currently, I am a junior at Clarkson majoring in Interdisciplinary Engineering and Management. While attending Clarkson, I’ve learned the foundations to becoming a successful businesswoman with the technological know-how of an engineer. This major caters to my need to be innovative, flexible, and my desire to become a leading expert in the environmental issues, especially waste management.
As you can see from my enclosed resume, I have gained experience in problem solving and teamwork through classes such as my EM120/121 class. In this class, we worked in teams and met the challenge of creating a product to solve an open-ended problem. We were in control of defining and solving this problem. Because of our limited timeframe, I learned to prioritize and address major concerns. Since all of our tasks were integrated, team members greatly improved their communication skills.
From technical reports to interacting with consultants, a person at ABC Corp. needs a problem-solving mindset and a desire to learn. I believe that I am a good candidate for this position because I have been prepared to tackle challenges. With hard work and determination, I believe that I can contribute to ABC Corp.
In closing, I would like to request an interview to discuss the Environment, Safety, and [End with your request for action.] Health Co-op position. I am very interested in this position and will contact you after my final exams end on May 15. Thank you.
Sincerely, [return x 4]
