Internships.com Answers: What do I write in my personal message?

February 22, 2011

ANSWER: Really, for the purposes of our site, the personal message you complete when you apply is the equivalent of the cover letter. Since you’re not mailing it and it’s processed through our system, you don’t have to spend time worrying about formatting an address at the top. Just start with the main body. personalmessage Internships.com Answers: What do I write in my personal message?

If you’ve already typed up your cover letter in a document or through our cover letter tool, simply open it up in a display mode and copy and paste the text. Be sure to include a salutation and a closing salutation.

How do you open up the display mode? It keeps saying that it is too many letters when I copy and paste it

Hi, are you trying to view what your message looks like when the employer is viewing it? There isn”t currently that option for the Personal Message, but it will appear exactly as it appears in the preview box.
