Dear Sir Madam

I write to you to express my interest in your company in a graduate entry marketing role. I am an energetic, creative and ambitious marketing graduate of Economics and Business Management who was recently awarded with an Msc in Marketing from Strathclyde Business School in Scotland. As a student I have always taken any opportunity to develop my marketing knowledge and leadership skills. These experiences have exposed me to team work and problem-based learning, which were part of the teaching and assessment together with students from all over the world.

I have attached my resume which highlights the following achievements from both my education and experience:

–       I hold an Msc in Marketing from the University of Strathclyde which has been ranked among the top 30 European business schools by the Financial Times. 

–       I was awarded with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business Management at the Catholic University in Milan.

–       I spent a semester abroad at Maastricht University in Holland, a leading university famous for its problem based learning method.

During my master’s degree at Strathclyde business school I improved my marketing skills marketing by working on different projects. For instance, together with a team of marketing students we assisted a Scottish enterprise in formulating its marketing strategy. In addition, during my dissertation, I carried out a quantitative research by designing a questionnaire for consumers and quantitative marketing researches. 

In order to enhance my practical, skills, I took two marketing and sales internships in Hungary (2010) and Germany (2009) which enabled me to apply the marketing theories and tools that I had learnt in class. During the internships, I gained experience in the following areas:

–       Planning and conducting extensive market analysis and market research

–        Customer profiling by providing Power point presentation

–        Web, direct email and telemarketing projects and SEO activities.

–       Delivery of affiliate programmes and direct email marketing campaigns 

–       Observing negotiations with business partners thus to marketing some products in the process

–       Delivery of affiliate programmes and direct email marketing campaigns 

I must admit that travelling extensively both in Europe and overseas have helped me develop a strong passion for international environments. I am highly motivated, dynamic and ambitious and have always demonstrated initiative and a natural ability to work effectively within multicultural teams. I am willing to learn and to achieve results. 

Kindly consider my application. 

Yours’ faithfully
