Exercise 2

Arrange the following application letter into correct order

-  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -

Part a

My co-workers and fellow students have describe me as analytical and ambitious, someone who focuses on results. I feel these characteristics make me a good match for your company, its goal of 'results you can build on,' and its specialization in the areas of quantitative policy analysis and process optimization. Both have qualitative and quantitative aspects, which is what attracted me to the position; I believe you need both to get the complete picture. I learned to combine those two aspects during my study of occupational psychology and my internship at Lucas corp. I also learned a lot about policy and change in organisations. I'm excited to put this knowledge to practical use as a junior consultant.

Part b

Dear Mr. Ryan,

Part c

I'm convinced that my focus on results, my highly current professional skills and my relevant work experience make me a suitable candidate for the position. I look forward to the opportunity to personally discuss how, in your employ, I might contribute to more effective policy and deliver 'results you can work with.'

Recruiter, Exo corp.

Los Angeles, CA. 90024

Part e

During my internship managing customer relations at Lucas corp., I realized that carefully planned policies often fail to live up to their promise due to poor execution. That seems wasteful to me. That's why I would like to help make policy and regulations in the Los Angeles more effective as a consultant at Exo corp.

Part f

Sincerely Yours,

Mark Matthew

Part g

I believe I have all the qualities this position requires. I'm not only passionate about my chosen field, but I also have experience performing statistical analyses with tools like SPSS and Excel. I'm a good communicator and gained experience in project-based working methods during my internship at Lucas corp. I'm also quite good at just generally getting things done. During the aforementioned internship, for instance, I introduced a new medium for communicating with our customers. It was immediately implemented and was well-received by the affected customers and staff.
