Graduate Industrial Engineer with experience in productivity management systems.

Dear Hiring Manager

I wish to apply for the Industrial Engineering position currently being advertised .Please find attached my CV for consideration.

As you can see from my CV, I am done with my 4-year degree in BEng Industrial Engineering at the North West University in Potchefstroom. I believe the knowledge and skills built up during this time make me the perfect candidate to join your winning team.

Working as an industrial engineer interests me because of my passion for solving complex problems and optimizing processes for continuous improvement. The field of Supply Chain management and Business Analytics are departments in Industrial engineering that I am most fond of. During my course I studied subjects such as Operational management for Engineers, Supply Chain management with a focus on Logistics, Engineering Management and Business Analytics. The mathematical and optimization skills together with the management skill set obtained have given me an excellent foundation for building a career as an Industrial Engineer.

Aside from my degree I have built my interest in the field of Supply Chain and Logistics in several ways. I did vacation work at Rheinmetal Denel Munition. The company manufactures ammunition and weapons. My job entailed analysing their procurement and Logistics department and giving suitable recommendations for improvement. My final year project was completed with the focus on Inventory inaccuracies in the retail and service industry and the impact it had on the overall supply chain of a company. I am currently employed as a junior industrial engineer at a manufacturing facility that produces cardboard packaging material. My main focus at the company is doing and analysing time studies to find and recommend areas where improvement is needed for the manufacturing process to be more productive. I also work closely with a Software development team to test and implement productivity software on the factory floor. This includes training the factory workers on how the system works and how they should capture data.

While working I also enrolled in an Occupation Health and Safety Short course. I did this to improve my industrial engineering skill set further. The company gave me occupational health and safety responsibilities, where I am currently able to recommend and implement process and product safety features that will reduce employees' exposure to chemical and physical work hazards.

I am confident that I can bring a level of expertise with me to your organisation. Add to this my enthusiasm and passion for supply chain & logistics, complex problem solving and eager to learn mindset and I believe my contribution will have an immediate impact on the business.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss my application further.


Sincerely, Talitha Venter
