Dear Mr. Soria,
Thanks to the opportunity that they offer to me with this scholarship, I wanted to do a few practices in the sector of ..... in (country of destination). I am a student of ..... Course of ... (Qualification).............. As you can see in my Curriculum Vitae, I have realized previously a few practices in...... Nowadays I am taking courses of my speciality in...... In addition, I work nowadays in ...... like......
Now I want to offer you an idea of my person and my motives for wanting to realize a few practices in your company. Since already I have said, I wanted to do a few practices in the sector of marketing in (country of destination) because I want to acquire more experience. I prefer the work in the consumers' (classic) marketing, but also I would be opened to being employed at the department of management of the quality of the product or at the department of strategic planning of your company.
I am learning French and/or Portuguese for a short time and I am conscious that a language only is learned deeply when one is in the country where one speaks this language. Since me it was not possible to learn French in the school, I have learned it for my account, because always I have wanted to know better to the French people and their customs. During my stay there I will want to be a part of the French culture and to learn everything possible on their society and culture. Why your company should employ me precisely as person in period of practices? In my opinion, I have so much professional as human qualities to be able to be employed at your company.
Being grateful in advance for your collaboration, sincerely yours,
Marina García Muñoz
