I haven't see the acronym EDP in years. Is it still used in computer sciences?Hello everybody,
could someone please look through my cover letter. I couldnīt find anyone to help me, but it is very important to finally get a job.
Thanks in advance!
Dear Mr. Jarman,
EspeciallyAs a native Iranian I perceive the activities of the ZIF as very valuable and important. Particularly when the majority of themy own family lives in a conflict area, it is good to know that outsiders take a stand for peaceful conditions in other parts of the world. To guarantee this, good international and intercultural understandings are thereforeindispensable.
Beyond my Iranian skills (And...what are these skills? Do you mean your ability to speak in your native language? If so, then write something like, "Beyond my advanced skills in Farsi... [If Farsi is the language you are referring to], during my studies, and especially during my semester abroad in Clermont- Ferrand in France, I had the
possibilityopportunity to develop very welland apply both my English and French skills. Another part of my studies were cultural studies courses, which I followed with great interest. To acquire additional basic knowledge I am currently attending a further educationclass in economics. Courses I already attended include public relations and culture management, among others.
Self- evidently,I possess not least due to correlating EDP courses during my studiesexcellent general computer literacy and particularly text and information processing program skills, as well as spreadsheets (MS Office). As I identify strongly with the field of activities of the ZIF and as I am willing to learn something new, the position is perfect for me. (This is the problem one sees in most cover letters - what is good for you, what you want. The person reading this letter is looking to advance his/her organization. What can you do to help this reader see that you are the best candidate?)
To get an idea of me and my strengths, I am willing to perform an internship in advance. Furthermore, the agency for employment grants a settling (What is a "settling")- in grant in case of recruitment.
I am, of course, ready to move to Berlin and could then take up the position immediately.
