Applying for work experience Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, im going to write to a few companies asking for the opportunity of some work experience with them in the summer, but there is this one paragraph in the cover letter that i dont think sounds right, so would anyone be able to tell me how to improve it iv been trying for ages and cant seem to find the right words.

    "I am currently studying Accountancy and Finance at the University of x and I am looking for the opportunity to increase my knowledge and gain some experience by working with an accounting firm such as yourself."( i then go on to talk about why i want to work for that particular company)

    Thank you for any help
