Dear Sir/Madam
Re: ECO/GRA/2007/06/23 GRADUATE RECRUITMENT APPLICATION 2007
In response to the advertisement on the Guardian Newspaper of 24th May 2007, 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,
Adebanjo Olukoya

Dear Sir/Madam
Re: APPLICATION FOR ENTRY LEVEL GRADUATE RECUITMENT POSITION
I was excited when I saw your advertised position stated above in the careers website (www.nigeriajobalerts.com) this morning and I am gladly sending you my CV for this role.
Presently, I am working with Excel Engineering Ltd where am doing my NYSC and responsible for the maintenance of electrical plants and machineries for the company’s diverse clients. This is related with my educational background which happens to be Electrical Engineering from the Ahmadu Bello University.

However, I have always wanted to work with Ecobank – as my personality best suits your overall corporate image. I am very articulate; with a high sense of record keeping, very strong interpersonal skills, effective communications ability and interests in finance. I have also been taking courses at the Nigerian Institute of Management, where I am exposed to the several aspects of patterns in the banking industry and business world.
Right through my studies and current professional engagements, I have proved to be self-motivated, value oriented, resourceful, adaptable, flexible and dependable – qualities that I am sure will successfully drive your bank’s corporate perspectives.
I will be eternally grateful if you consider me for this position.
Yours sincerely,
Adebanjo Olukoya

Ps: I am interested in this position and will be very happy to be interviewed by you.
