I’m glad to introduce myself to you. My Chinese name is Ma Lin, but you can call me Rock, my English name. I chose Rock to be my English name because I want to be as tough as a rock, hehe. I was born and raised in Guangdong, so I speak both Cantonese and Mandarin.
I’ll soon graduate from Zhongshan University, majoring in accounting. I think you may have interviewed quite a lot of students from our school, so you know this major prepares us for CGA and most courses are taught in English. My GPA is 3.6, it ranks number 9 in the 115 students in my grade. And I’ve passed 15 exams in CGA, I anticipate I will get the CGA qualification in 2009.
Besides having good academic performance, I was actively involved in student activities. I was in charge of Student Welfare (生活委员) in my class, and in the Student Union of our school. I enjoyed this position because what I did was very important to everybody, although it was mostly small details.
I had a three-month internship in Guangdong Zhengzhong Accounting Firm. I did the inventory check and helped the accountants to make the auditing reports. My boss was pleased with my performance and he asked me to recommend my classmate to join our team.
I would like to apply for the post of industrial engineer, which your company offered. I feel that I am the right sort of person for the post because my qualifications and experience are really suitable for the position.
I wish to assure you that, if successful, I would endeavor to give you every satisfaction. It would be greatly appreciated if you grant me an opportunity of an interview. At that time, I will present my credentials. I can be reached by phone at 13531398140 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Enclosed please find a resume, a copy of the recommendation form and the official transcript, Thank you for your time and consideration
