Dear Mr. Smith:

I have spoken with Alina Davis, who is working as a project manager with United Nations, about Internship opening, and she has recommended me to submit my application for the position of Internee. Please find my application, resume and supporting documents for your consideration.

I possess a wide range of skills that are perfectly matched to the qualifications you are seeking. My key strengths are (list two or three key competencies associated to the position requirements). Additionally, my exceptional communication, interpersonal and conflict management skills have played a key role in providing exceptional levels of support.

My background and training along with my six months of Internship and overall career in social services are also vital attributes I would bring to your esteemed organization.

As a fresh and passionate candidate, I would welcome the chance to talk about how my experience and skills can be of value for your organization. I will call your office next week in anticipation of an interview. If you need any additional information regarding my credentials, I can be reached any time on my cell phone at (000) 121-7784.
