I am writing this letter in response to your ad in the (name of newspaper) on (date). I
would like to put forward my case for the job.
Presently, I am in the final year of
English major in the (name of university). Upon my postgraduation, I am keen on working
with your consultant company (name of company). It is my desire to pursue a career in
consulting. I have thoroughly enjoyed working on my dissertation, which involved extensive
research, hypothesis formulation, hours of analysis, and team collaboration with my
mentor; this process is not unlike the consulting project cycle. Moreover, my elective
coursework in microeconomics has increased my interest and honed my skills in the business
arena. Therefore, I am convinced that consulting is right career for me.
I am fascinated by your company due to various reasons. Since I am extremely interested in
the life sciences and telecom industries, and your company (name) has a strong presence in
these sectors. I am also drawn to the small size of the firm, as I feel it would create
more immediate opportunities for leadership and a strong community environment.
I have enclosed my resume for your review and thank you for your time and consideration. I
hope to hear from your team in the near future. You may contact me at my address and phone
number given below.
