Ms. Jane Smith, HR Manager

XYZ Company

789 University Street

Anytown, LA 70000

Dear Ms. Smith:

I am applying for the Marketing Intern position that was recently advertised with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Career Services. With my experience, academic background and career interests, I believe I would make an excellent addition to the marketing team and XYZ Company.

Your position requires skills in communication, research and teamwork. My strong communication and marketing skills have proved to be valuable assets at two major retail

chains. As a Sales Associate with JC Penney Department Store, I achieved the Customer Satisfaction Award and was promoted to Lead Sales Associate after only three months of employment. This recognition is awarded to individuals with outstanding customer service

and leadership skills, sales ability and teamwork efforts. At Old Navy Department Stores, I worked as part of a team of fifteen to plan and execute marketing strategies for promotional items. Additionally, you will find my research background at ABC Medical Center valuable

in successfully completing marketing projects. The enclosed resume will describe my

experience in greater detail.

It is evident from your website that XYZ Company is transforming the industry with global expansion and technological advancement. I am anxious to be a part of such an innovative team. I am confident that I can make an immediate contribution to the department and am willing and eager to learn additional skills that would benefit the company. Moreover, the internship will be a great learning experience, allowing me to apply my academic studies to a real-world work environment.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the possibility of joining XYZ’s Marketing Department. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at (337) 555-4444 for additional information. Thank you for your time and consideration.
