Dear Ms. Anderson:

I am writing to apply for Internship in the Information Technology department of Thermo Fisher Scientific. Currently, I am a junior at Logon City College pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with a focus on application programming.

In addition, I am able to resolve software application problems in compliance with established IT standards, policies, and authorized application approaches.
