Dear Hiring Manager
APPLICATION FOR A GAS/LNG SPECIALIST CONSULTANT IN FACTS GLOBAL ENERGY SINGAPORE
I am writing to express my interest as a Specialist consultant in Gas/LNG in FACTS Global Energy. My expected graduation is in May 2013, with honours in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. I am keen on starting my career with FACTS Global Energy as I believe in the mission of providing high-quality strategic advice and giving personal attention by visiting their offices and by establishing open and direct dialogue between staff and clients. With FACTS’s presence in 7 nations around the globe to facilitate personal interaction with clients, is especially alluring for me, as I am deeply intrigued by the idea of intercultural communication and possible overseas working opportunities with FACTS Global Energy eventually in the near future. Thus, I do hope to be given the opportunity to be part of your esteemed firm.
During my internship with Jurong Consultants, I have also had the opportunity to be involved in various projects that are based in Middle East – Dubai, Qatar etc. all these projects involved liaison with clients overseas. Thus, I do know the importance of maintaining a professional relationship with clients. Moreover, during my exchange in Europe, I have travelled to 20 countries and 100 cities in Europe and attended a course on effective cross cultural communication and organizational behaviour with 30 other nationalities; thus, helping me gain insights into effective communication with different nationalities which I believe is an invaluable asset in this globalised economy.
Having been through a five month rigorous training in public speaking and professional communication also equips me with the necessary skill sets to ensure competency in case presentation to clients – a fundamental skill in the consultancy field. On top of that, I have had the privilege to intern at Bluetec Investment company for one month during my vacation to gain insights in the highly volatile and challenging banking and trading industry. These, I believe are the intangible skills which I can offer to help FACTS Global Energy pursue its mission in providing high-quality and personalized strategic advice to clients.
I really look forward to being given the opportunity by your esteemed firm to an interview session with you, to get to know more about FACTS Global and for you to get to know me better at your convenience. You may reach me at (+65) 91234567 or XXX@gmail.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
