Summer internships are great vocation deciders. Some colleges make it mandatory for students to do internships for college credits. Depending on which vocation you are deciding on, summer internships will provide you with the ability to understand a company’s work across different departments.

Summer internships also instill confidence in students which of course is an important prerequisite to any job. Students should decide what they intend their major in college to be and choose an internship program according to that. If you have chosen your major, the following cover letter example may help you acquire a summer internship – with a little modification to the content of course!

Mr. Nick Austin
Manager Human Resources
ABC Inc.
3566 Wood Road
Bronx, NY 88848


Dear Mr. Austin:

I am writing to express a keen interest in obtaining a Summer Internship at ABC Inc. Presently, I am pursuing my Bachelor’s of Business Administration from the New York State University. As part of my education program, I am required to do a six week internship at a company of my choice – and my choice is ABC Inc. due to its fame and prestige worldwide.

I am especially interested in being rotating to different departments in order to learn what makes them successful. Per your requirements, I am a good communicator with great research skills which can be used for proposal writing and correspondence management. As I have a major is marketing, my interest lies in building marketing plans and learning campaigning activities. In addition, I am a member of the school marketing club where members make mock marketing campaigns and perform sales activities so I have some background in how things generally work. My references say I am a meticulous, proactive leader who regularly follows jobs from start to successful completion.

I would bring this same knowledge and enthusiasm to your company. To set a time of meeting, I will call your office to next week. In the interim, I can be reached at the phone numbers or email address given on the top.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
