Dear Hiring Manager,
I am writing to express my interest in working at XXX S.A. as a civil engineer. I am towards the end of my studies at the School of Civil Engineering of XXX and going to graduate in July, after the presentation of my thesis. For the last five months I have been working as an intern at XXX, where I was member of the teams responsible for the XXX project and the XXX Metro Stations. I am currently planning my next career steps and looking for a job in order to gain more professional experience. During the last two years of my studies I majored in Structural Analysis and Design. The university courses I attended and the projects I implemented provided me with a strong footing in the theoretical concepts and the technical aspects of structural engineering. For the purposes of my master thesis, I performed the analysis of the structural behavior of a wind tower.

Furthermore, during my internship at XXX I came in contact with large-scale projects and obtained useful hands-on experience. I also recognized the challenges that construction works involve and learned how to solve everyday problems effectively. Finally, working in teams helped me develop my interpersonal and communicational skills.

To sum up, I believe that my education, work experience, and enthusiasm for the discipline make me a qualified candidate. I would be glad to join the engineering team of XXX, since its project portfolio seems to me very promising and matches my keen interest in eco-friendly technologies and sustainable growth. I am eager to work hard to serve the success of projects and I am flexible regarding location.

I look forward to speaking with you in order to provide all the additional information required.
