Cover letter: Standard
11a Main Street
Job reference: Grad/15
I am writing with regards to the graduate vacancy advertised in The Times Top 100 Graduate
Employers directory. I am enclosing my CV for your information.
Having recently graduated with a BA in English Literature from The University of Manchester,
I am now looking to apply the knowledge I have acquired into the workplace and the
graduate role at Bose Media offers the perfect opportunity to do this.
I believe I meet all of the requirements outlined for the post. During my studies, I developed
an excellent eye for detail and have significant experience of reading and interpreting large
amounts of materials in a range of genres. I undertook a number of team projects as part of
my studies, so I am very comfortable working as part of a team and am confident in my
interpersonal and communication abilities. I have received feedback from fellow team
members that helps to affirm this.
I am experienced in working to deadlines and accept that this would be an important part of
the role. My abilities in this area are further demonstrated by the position I held as assistant
editor at the university’s student newspaper, The Voice, during the final year of my degree.
This role required significant responsibility and commitment in terms of time and effort –
something I relished. It was also necessary for me to hone my prioritisation and multi-
tasking skills in order to effectively carry out this role alongside my academic studies.
I would welcome the opportunity to explain more about my interest in your company and
the skills and experience that I can bring to the position. You will note from my CV that I
have a real passion for literature, media and current affairs and look forward to sharing this
with you and contributing to the future success of Bose Media.
I look forward to hearing from you in the near future regarding my application.
