Lettre de candidature

Monsieur Wa... A
92190 Meudon

Sought job:project manager, product manager, R&D manager, scientific officer, advocate, PR, representative, team leader, sales manager

Dear HR manager,
This letter is
written in regards to the position “Project manager or a similar position in
your firm”. I am interested in this position because it involves the use of my
two main areas of passion; research and management. I apologize for the length
of this letter as it is intended to serve as both cover letter and personal

I have a PhD in Plant Breeding and Genetics.
I come from Egypt and I live in France at the moment. By many standards, I am a
successful person. Yet, my life could have taken a completely different turn. I
was born and raised in a rural part of Egypt in a farming family along with 12
brothers and sisters. Some of them never went to school, and those who did
never went beyond high school. In Arabic, Wahid means “the lonely”. Destiny
offered me a chance to have a different fate from them all.

I was good in school. I
went to college in Cairo. I graduated with honor and first of my class in the
International Agriculture Program at Cairo University, Egypt. I worked as an
engineer for an agricultural company in Egypt for a few months and had my first
exposure to the Business world. I put a first step in company management and
customer service. Then, my country required me to serve. I spent a year and a
half in the desert of Egypt for obligatory military service. It was hard and I
disliked it, but it taught me personal resilience, discipline and responsibility.
Afterwards, I was hired as a Teaching Assistant for Cairo university: a
prestigious position in my country. I was good at it and received awards. I was
climbing the social ladder and achieving what was considered a dream for my
family. Driven by my daring personality and my perseverant nature, I carried
their dream successfully on my shoulders. The story could have ended there. But
it did not. I was not born with my own dreams; I built them as the world opened
to me.

Now that I had reached
the limits of their dream, I wanted to travel and I wanted to learn more. I was
awarded a prestigious Dutch scholarship to study a master degree in Plant Biotechnology
at Wageningen University: a prestigious life sciences university in the
Netherlands. During my master, I gained more knowledge about genetics,
biotechnology, biofuels, plant breeding and many related disciplines. Yet, I
started to develop a need to explore the American school of research and the US
in general as a potential place for my next goal. I spent a four-months
internship at the University of Florida, USA where I learned more about
biofuels, drought, breeding, genetics and more, from an American prospective. After
finishing my master in the end of 2010, I had to return to Egypt and was
promoted as an Assistant Lecturer. I did not know it yet, but I was about to
live the most important event of my entire life.

January 25th,
2011, Tahrir Square; the beginning of a revolution. On this day, along with
millions of young Egyptians, I allowed myself to dream of something bigger and
better for my country, and thus for myself. For the first time, I was invested
with the right to choose. I became greatly involved and had the honor to
actively participate in the movement, and I discovered my passion for
leadership and management. I represented the Egyptian universities young academic
staff as a co-founder and spokesperson for the Union of young Academic Staff; a
group that made significant positive changes in the higher education law in
Egypt. I was responsible for speaking to the media and participated in negotiating
laws and regulations with the unstable government that was trying to rise from
the chaos. I also served as the Minister of Planning and International
Collaboration for the Egyptian “Shadow government”; an organization formed by
young Egyptian Academics during the events of January 2011. This date is also
the second time I was born. For the first time of my life, I was having a dream
of my own. I dreamt that my country could become a place of democracy and
freedom. The first year of the revolution also showed me who I really was. I learnt
that my true skills and passion lean towards leadership, diplomacy, negotiation
and public speaking, passions I would love to bring to your company.

By the end of 2011, believing
my role to my country was fulfilled; I decided to move on to my professional
path. I obtained a scholarship to continue on to a PhD at Colorado
State University (CSU), USA in the Plant Breeding and Genetics Program. I
worked in a very exciting project to improve wheat for drought tolerance. With my
experience in teaching, I was also offered a Teaching Assistant position at CSU,
which I greatly enjoyed. I learned how to teach and communicate effectively
with students from a different culture and in a different language. With my
different background and problem-solving mind, I was successful in achieving
excellence and innovation in my class, which my students appreciated and expressed.

Following my passions, at CSU I got highly involved in
leadership and scientific activities. I got elected as a Senator for the
Graduate School, a Vice President for the Graduate Student Council, a Director
of Graduate Student Affairs and also nationally as the Chair for the
International Student Concerns Committee at the National Association of
Graduate and Professional Students in the USA (NAGPS). Moreover, I was named an
International Presidential Fellow and a Global Environmental Sustainability
leadership Fellow by the University. Throughout those leadership positions, I
was able to practice and strengthen my soft skills like strategic planning and
thinking, advocacy and public speaking, which are fundamental in all business
environments. During my four-years PhD course at CSU, I was offered prestigious
scientific and leadership awards for my accomplishments, from my department all
the way to the national level as highlighted in my CV.

I had
just completed my PhD program and was offered a Postdoctoral
position from INRA (French National Institute for
Agricultural Research) at
Versailles, France, where I worked on two projects related to second-generation
biofuel (biofuel from plant residues). A few months ago, I
started to realize that by reaching the highest point of my scientific education
(PhD), I had just freed myself from the commitment I had made to academia, and
could now really pursue dreams that better suit me. I started to look for a career shift where I could do
something original and combine both my scientific and soft skills together. I
wanted a dynamic opportunity that would allow me to put my skills to work
immediately. I believe my scientific knowledge and my natural management and
leadership skills can be combined into an exciting new career in your company.

A lot of people I met along the way
told me that one-day I would become a minister, an ambassador or a businessman.
They know that I am a proactive and dynamic person who likes to explore new
ideas and push boundaries. I believe that the first limits to achieving vibrant
innovative projects are in the mind. I am not scared of taking initiatives and
building ambitious projects. I believe I can become an impactful international
business leader and before that a dynamic and inspiring Portfolio Manager. This
position will help me strengthen my breeding and genetics skills, improve my leadership
and management capacity and allows me to utilize my full potential. Your company
will provide me with the opportunity to continue my life as I have dreamt it, and
I will give it my energy, my passion and my heart.
