Dear hiring manager,
In reply to your recent advertisement for the position of a Management Trainee, I would like to be
considered for this vacancy and enclosed is my CV for your review.
Having graduated with honours in Sociology and Anthropology from the University of Benin, I
just completed my national youth service with Eko Supreme Resources Nigeria limited; an FMCG
company where I gained valuable knowledge providing tailored services in human resource,
production planning, inventory and control. This combination of working experience whilst
serving has given me both theoretical and practical knowledge needed to hit the ground running in
any future position I take up. I now have a wide range breadth experience of the type that gives
potential employers the flexibility to place me in a broad of demanding situations, with the
confidence that I will undertake my duties professionally and effectively. As the position with you is predominantly in professional dealings, I am confident that I can make
a substantial contribution to your company. I work well under pressure and carry out tasks in a
thorough, precise manner.
While it is early in my professional career, you will find that I exhibit a powerful combination of
proven ability, expertise, solid communication skills and extensive hands on experience. I would
also like to state that I have researched your company and was very impressed with its reputation
not only amongst your competitors but also with the public.
I look forward to an opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your firm, its plans and goals.
