Milano Street, 55
To whom it may concern,
I am Giancarlo Moretto, student of Pharmaceutical Faculty in Rome at the University of Rome. With this letter I would like to express my strong interest for participation at your Student Exchange Programme in the summer of 2013. As a suture graduate, I plan to build an international career in the field of pharmacy in the EU, so this programme will really mean a lot for my professional aspirations. Capability to handle problems, social balance and the necessity to gain an international experience outside my University make me a proper candidate for this position.
I have done an internship for about two months at a local pharmacy in Rome. During that placement, I have mastered skills like: computer proficiency in pharmaceutical software, how to make the reception of medicaments and register them in the database. Working with people has broadened my communication talent and I learnt how to handle different characters in very short time. Furthermore I assisted the senior pharmacists to prepare and extract remedies, crèmes and potions. With my experience in creating computer applications and English proficiency I was able to adjust to the work in a very short time. I believe that my working experience in combination with my studies make my candidateship for your programme possible.
During my studies, I have been a student representative. I was chosen at the Faculty’s elections for three years in a row. My responsibilities, as a representative included: organizing term exams, social gathering and sport events; representation of my Faculty at the students Senate and facilitation management. Those assignments enabled me to develop strong organization skills and to become responsible young individual, taking into account the needs of my colleges. Also, as a student of University of Rome I discovered the usefulness of team work, especially in laboratory conditions. I advocate the opinion that my team working experience is essential in a community pharmacy and in the area of research also. Only with quality team work great achievement can be richen, and I am have a strong will to pursuit that goal.
Thank you very much in advanced for this opportunity and for considering my application. Considering my experience and skills I believe that your programme will benefit a lot from my presence and it will enhance my future career in the field of pharmacy. I am convinced that I will find a place in all the activities anticipated by your University and I will do my best to adjust to your facilities and courses. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
