Dear Sir,


I wish to apply for the position of management trainee as advertised in the homepage on 1 Dec 2005.

I am currently enrolled in the final year of the business administration course at the University Science Malaysia and I will graduate in April 2006.

Your company’s unique involvement and leading position in online recruitment has prompted me to apply for the management trainee position in your organization. I am very interested in pursuing a career in the field of business administration. I have completed a wide range of subjects that provide me with a firm base of knowledge and skills relevant to the requirements of the management trainee position.

I notice that the position you advertised requires two years of work experience. Although I do not have any work experience pertaining to the recruitment industry, I have gone through a five-month industrial training during my final year of studies where I was given tasks equivalent to a management executive.

I believe that my knowledge and skills will help me contribute a great deal to your company. Above all, I possess the interest and determination to perform well in the position you are offering.

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss the position further. I can be contacted at (04) 699-1234 and the following email address:
Thank you for your consideration.

Yours Sincerely,

Dear Sir,


I refer to your advertisement in dated 2 Dec 2005 for the above position. Realizing that the Internet is no longer an alternative but a necessity in the next millennium, I am keen to enhance my career in the content development of your company’s website.

Allow me to introduce myself briefly. I gained basic knowledge of journalistic reporting, feature writing and editing skills from my major in Media Studies from the University of Malaya. My present job as a senior editor in a news agency since 1999 provides me with work experience and on-the-job training in the above areas.

In 2003, I had the opportunity to write for Alta Vista, an Internet content provider for the Asia Pacific region. The extensive knowledge I gained from my research work on employment trend and labor market information has enlightened me in many ways. I believe I can share my expertise with e-Newsletter in terms of recruitment practices and human resource management if given the opportunity.

I am also well-versed in HTML and Pagemaker 6.0 as I have been actively involved in maintaining the website of the news agency I serve. I am able to meet deadlines promptly as a result of many years of working at a fact pace in this agency.

The attached resume of mine will provide you with more information about my work experience. I shall be glad to attend an interview to furnish you with more details. I can be reached via email at

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours faithfully,
