Websites are full of guidelines and tips for cover letter writing however what most websites do not tell you is what to include in a cover letter. If you are applying for an entry level internship then you are probably a student and this might as well be your first cover letter.
Here is a list of essentials for your cover letter for marketing internship:
• Your cover letter should express your interest in the position along with a solid reason. Tell them why you are interested in the specific position at the specific firm you are applying at.
• Tell them what qualifies you for the position and which competencies render you a perfect match for the same.
• Reflect on your personal skills and traits applicable to the role, make sure the attributes you mention are meaningful for the employer.
• State your plan of action regarding how you intend to follow up, be proactive!
