Dear Hiring Manager:

I would like to apply for the Purchasing Internship for Fall 2010. I recently read in BusinessWeek that XXX Company is ranked as one of the best places for college graduates to launch a career and I am excited about the opportunity to join an organization with an excellent reputation. My academic and leadership experience may be of value as you engage in a search for an intern. I meet the necessary requirements since my GPA is 3.25 and I am eligible for academic credit for graduation. I expect to complete my degree in Supply Chain Management in December of 2010.

Background includes:

  • Selected as group leader for numerous academic projects leading groups of up to 5 classmates with outstanding results.
  • Increased customer satisfaction and subsequent sales, while building lasting relationships.
  • Elected as President of (academic/community association) and grew membership 5%.
  • Recognized for exceeding organizational objectives and received several company awards.

At this point in my academic pursuit, I am ready to apply what I've learned to contribute to XXX Company. I am in a position to leverage my education, customer service, sales and leadership experience to succeed as an intern with your company.

While my enclosed resume outlines my background, I welcome the opportunity to speak in more detail regarding my successes. I look forward to learning about the next steps in the selection process and assure you that my commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism will be of great value to your team. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,


Mark Jones
