SAMPLE CONTENT – For an Internship
While researching public relations firms, I recently discovered the internship opportunities that Western
Public Relations offers. I feel that my qualifications and professional goals are well matched with what
you are looking for in an intern.
As my enclosed resume indicates, I am a current student at Boise State University, working towards the
completion of a Bachelors degree in Psychology. My professional goal is to apply the knowledge of
human perception I am gaining through my degree to the practice of public relations. As I am entering my
junior year, I am actively seeking opportunities to learn more about the field of public relations and further
develop my skills in a hands-on environment. I believe that I would be a very successful intern and strong
contributor. Through my previous work experiences, I have demonstrated the ability to communicate
effectively with a wide variety of customers. For example, while working for Sports Authority as a Sales
Associate, I had the highest sales within the store for 3 months in a row, which resulted from my ability to
assess what information the customer needed to make a purchase, and effectively educate them about
their product options.
The internship with Western Public Relations is especially appealing to me because of how diverse your
client base is. Since I strive to be the best in all that I do, I am eager to gain as many different
experiences as possible so that I can excel in working with all types of clients. I would greatly appreciate
the opportunity to contribute to the continued success of Western while honing these skills. If possible, I
would like to meet with you to further discuss this opportunity. I can be reached by phone at (208) 555-
1234, or by e-mail at JohnSmith@internet.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
SAMPLE CONTENT – For a Student Job
I am writing to express my interest in the Filing Clerk position available with XYZ Company. I found out
about this opening from an ad you placed on BroncoJobs, Boise State University’s job posting system.
I am currently in my first year at Boise State, studying business. Through past experiences, I have
developed several skills that I feel would make me very successful as a Filing Clerk. In high school, I was
the secretary of our school’s Student Event Planning Committee, which developed, planned, and
executed social events such as dances, homecoming week activities, and after-hours special events.
Through this experience, I developed strong organizational skills that I will bring to XYZ Company. As
secretary, it was my responsibility to make sure that accurate records were taken and stored properly. I
was responsible for managing documents needed to successfully execute our events, as well as records
that had to be kept on file for the school’s administration. During the time I was secretary, there was
never a document that was lost or misplaced.
Additionally, through my participation in team sports in high school, I developed excellent teamwork
skills. I learned how to be a good follower, listen to those in authority and follow directions, and I also
learned how to step up and be a leader when appropriate. I feel that I am an excellent team player
overall, which will be an asset to me in this position, where I will have to carefully follow instructions from
others, but also be able to be self-sufficient in my work.
I feel that my combination of organizational and teamwork abilities make me an excellent candidate for
the Filing Clerk position. I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you further about how I could
contribute to XYZ Company is this role. I can be reached at (208) 123-4567, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
