Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Jacobs
To whom it may concern,
I wish to apply for the role of Graduate Civil Engineer (Job Number: EU/00000G), currently being advertised in Gradcracker.
As you will see from my enclosed CV, I have spent the last year working as an engineering assistant responsible for control different work packages such as tender comparison, control of the construction and the installation planning, optimization of construction means, technical reports and construction and installation logistics. Particularly, I worked as an assistant to site engineer involved in the construction of a new wastewater collection system and the replacement of an existing water supply network in Selva (Spain) at Vitrac Obra Publica S.L. during a four-month contract.
I am highly interested in being a Jacobs employee for many reasons. First of all, the reputation of the firm and its core values are essential to begin a great career as a civil engineer; strong relationships between partners and clients based on trust and respect, delivering quality work and value to clients and growing as a professional with Jacobs and for-profit client's business. This role is an amazing opportunity to be a multiskilled professional involved in major projects of large scale systems such as Blackfriars, Upper Forth Bridge Crossing or Mars Rove, to interact with multidisciplinary and talented people.
I also feel I possess the necessary personal and professional qualities to meet the demands of the job. I am highly motivated in this particular area of business for the changing future; sustainable water management and water strategies. And I consider myself well equipped to respond to the challenge offered by the post, developing both technical and project management skills, being a team worker, and playing an important role with the Jacobs' growth.
I would be able to start work immediately and I am available for interview at any time which might be convenient to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

Dear Ms Merrick
Please accept my application for the role of Civil/Structural Engineer as advertised on seek.com on 25 November.
I am a self-motivated Civil/Structural Engineer with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons) and six years experience in design and estimation teams on a range of projects. In 2007 I achieved Chartered Professional Engineer status from Engineers Australia. I am seeking to develop my skills in my next challenge and am very interested in joining the engineering team at Asterix Construction.
Working as a civil/structural engineer at Robertson Construction I have worked on many projects, including: the Mileville sewer, the Walker motorway, several apartment complexes, Travalltown iron mine and Greenfields copper mine. My skills in modelling and designing projects using AutoCAD, 12D and Space Gass, and my focus on getting a job done well and on time, have resulted in all projects being completed successfully and with very positive feedback from managers and clients.
I have a thorough knowledge of the processes of construction in ground engineering projects and mining and also excellent interpersonal and communication skills. My organisational and multitasking abilities are advanced.
Please let me know if you would like more information about my projects. I look forward to discussing my suitability for this role in person.
