Dear Sir/Madam

                   Re: ECO/GRA/2007/06/23 GRADUATE RECRUITMENT APPLICATION 2016

         In response to the advertisement on the Guardian Newspaper of 24th May 2016, please find enclosed a copy of my CV for the position of Graduate Recruitment at your bank.
         I am young, energetic and resourceful and graduated from Enugu State University with a degree in Geography. I have just completed my National Youth Service, during which I served as a Ticket Officer with Sosoliso Airlines, where I was responsible for the sales of flight tickets for over 3000 passengers per day. This heightened my accountability, dexterity and ability to work under pressure with little or no supervision.
My previous experience also exposed me to a lot of paperwork, records-keeping, cash handling, customer service, decision-making, working as a team; attributes I hope will be very significant in the kind of person you hope to employ at Ecobank.
         I am very confident of maintaining high levels of commitment and consistency with multiple projects and work patterns and I believe I am fully informed on what this role involves, with an earnest passion to fulfill your objectives.
         I will be glad if you consider me for this position. Hope to hear from you soon.

 Yours sincerely,
 Your signature here
 Munachiso Arachie.
