APPLICATION FOR THE POST OF MANAGEMENT TRAINEE
I wish to apply for the position of management trainee as advertised in the JobStreet.com 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your consideration.
