Using the write language is crucial to cover letter writing. If you don’t have idea of the hiring firm’s culture and normative language, chances are you might use a writing style that is not appreciated in the firm thus lessening your chances of being called for interview. Taking a tone too formal or too casual both can be harmful. Try to ascertain what kind of tone is considered appropriate at the specific company you are applying at.
Following are some must do’s for your computer science internship cover letter:
• State the reason why you wish to apply for an internship at the specific firm
• Demonstrate why you are the top candidate by matching your skills against the required ones
• Let them know you admire the firm along with some solid reasons
• Re-read and proofread the letter at least 2-3 times
