My name is Jack S. Turner. Right now, I live in Houston in an apartment at 1422 Jamison Ave, #222, but not for long if I don’t find a job before I finish school. My dream job would be to work as a logistics manager for a major international container shipping line.  I can’t expect to walk right into this job, so settling for an entry-level management position may be within reach.  I’ll graduate college in December from Rice University with a B.A. in International Business. 

I know my experience is pretty close to what companies might want given I’m just finishing school and haven’t had much direct experience. I did land an intern position APL Lines the summer of 2008 where I worked in export documentation and created international bills of lading for global accounts. I learned all about shipping lanes, how goods are rated for shipping cost, insurance, arrival times, and even restrictions on goods going to certain countries. During the summer of 2007, I worked at the same shipping line but as a dock worker loading shipping containers. It’s a good thing there is a port in Houston, I would not have been able to learn about commercial merchant ships, the speed, the design, the crew compliment, and loading the containers. I even learned how the ships are loaded using cranes that run alongside the ships, how they are secured for storms at sea, and how they are manifested aboard the ship.  

I’m hoping my summer jobs will be enough to land a good entry-level position because it’s rare to have related skills for your dream career right after you graduate. Both summer experiences really helped me to see that international shipping is more than just filling out paperwork. There’s a lot to learn when it comes to the actual physical work that is involved, the ships that carry the goods, and the high risk of shipping over the ocean rather than by air. Just wearing a tie or nice trousers looks good, but it’s also good to be able to say I loaded the container. I know about commercial ships and ocean travel. In other words, I’ve gotten my hands dirty learning from the bottom up. 

I have also learned that hands-on work experience makes me a better person with other employees. I can talk to them easier, I can even make suggestions that they actually follow sometime. I try to think ahead about problems that come up so that me and my teammates can avoid mistakes in the work. An employer won’t have to worry about training me after I hopefully get hired. Besides, I’m motivated and a quick learner.  Yeah, I feel pretty good about myself gave the economy. So good, I’ll write to the human resource offices in the states at two major container shipping lines line Maersk and Evergreen.  

Note:- Just do the body part of the letter. Rest, I will do.
