Sample Cover Letter For Internship With Experience In

In this post, you learned how to highlight your recent internship experience in a resume. But what about the cover letter? Here are some tips for making your internship stand out.

Cover letters explain why you are qualified for a job. They don’t repeat the resume but expand on it. As a recent graduate, your internships may be the only experience you have related to the work you’re interested in pursuing.

The two most important things about internships are what you did and what you learned.  As an intern at ABC company, my responsibilities included XYZ.

That part is pretty straightforward. Determining the skills you gained from the internship may take a little more thought. It’s definitely worth it as it shows how you can use those qualities at a future job.

For example, if you had an accounting internship, you could say it taught you attention to details.

If you had an engineering internship, you could say it taught you to solve problems.

If you had a journalism internship, you could say you learned to meet deadlines.

For an internship in the psychology or social services fields, you could say you learned to interact with different types of people.

Even if you are trying to break into a new field, you can highlight transferable skills from your internship. In the examples above–detail-orientation, problem solving, time-management, and cooperation–are qualities that many employers look for in new hires.

Your internship provided you with the skills you need to land your first job. The cover letter is the tool to tell hiring managers about those skills. Put in the effort to make your cover letter stand out. When you get that first job offer, you’ll be happy you did.

Here is an example of a cover letter for an entry-level job.

Ellen Editor
Large Publishing Company
123 Main Street
Big City, US 00000

Dear Ms. Editor,

I’m writing to express my interest in the Editorial Assistant job at Large Publishing Company.

I recently graduated with an English degree from Large University.  I served as an editor on the weekly school newspaper and tutored at-risk children from a local elementary school. Last summer, I interned at Any town newspaper.  There I assisted editors with research, wrote headlines and photo captions, and helped to manage social media. These tasks taught me to think critically, juggle multiple projects and deadlines, and work well on teams.  My past experiences make me a strong candidate for the Editorial Assistant job.

I have enclosed my resume and I would appreciate the chance to meet with you to discuss my qualifications. I will call you next week to verify you received this information. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Julie Job Applicant

Mr. James Crowley
Finance Manager
Acme Inc.
555 W. Applegarth Blvd.
Anytown, TX 75000

Dear Mr. Crowley:

Two of your former interns, Brian Hodges and Martha Smith, suggested I contact you regarding finance internship opportunities. They are familiar with my background and felt I would be an excellent match for your summer internship program.

Currently a junior majoring in finance at UNT, I have demonstrated strong academic performance in all finance courses, maintaining a 3.5 GPA in my major. The courses I have completed have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful analysis and management of portfolio-investment strategies. I have a proven ability to learn challenging concepts quickly and have developed competencies in diverse areas, including:

 

 

  • Industry research/information sourcing
  • Comparative analysis
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Pro forma analysis
  • Cash-flow analysis
  • Financial modeling and asset valuation
  • Portfolio and asset management
  • Insurance plans and mutual funds
  • Retirement and estate planning
  • Tax planning and investment strategies

In addition to my analytical strengths, I bring to the table advanced computer skills (with cross-platform exerptise in Windows and Mac); expertise in the MS Office suite of products; and familiarity with programming languages including SQL, HTML and VB.

Since starting college, I have worked part-time (summers/holidays/evenings) as a clerk at Wal-Mart. In this position, I have earned a reputation for consistently exceeding company and customer expectations. Wal-Mart's store manager has asked me to return this summer, but I yearn to gain corporate finance experience. I am impressed by Acme's innovation and success, and I would very much like to be part of such a winning company.

The enclosed resume provides more details of my skills and achievement track record. If you agree that I would make a valuable addition to your team, please feel free to call me at (555) 555-5555 or email me at pamela@somedomain.com. I know you are busy, so thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,



Pamela Jung

Enclosure: Resume
