Dear Ms. Ortiz,
Please accept my enthusiastic application for the public relations internship you posted through ABC College's Career Services Office. I would love the opportunity to work as a summer assistant for your company. As soon as I read the description of the positionp and the required skills, I knew I was a well-qualified candidate for the job.
You specify that you are looking for someone with strong writing skills for publishing press releases and other information material. As an English major, a writing tutor and an editor of my school paper and multiple literary magazines, I have become a skilled writer with a variety of experience.
I also fulfill your requirement that applicants be both academically successful and resourceful. As a double major in the Honors Forum with a 3.99 GPA, I have displayed my strong work ethic and my ability to rise to intellectual challenges. I have also demonstrated my resourceful nature while working for Sarasota Reads, a program that involves discussing literature with young adults. As a group leader, I have devised numerous creative ways to engage children in the novels we read. For example, I organized a festival for the students to provide information on the social context of one of the books. I believe my academic record and independent, resourceful nature make me extremely qualified for an internship with your company.
Working as an office assistant for the Career Services Office at ABC College, I have acquired skills that will be valuable as a PR assistant. My job has helped me gain experience in making phone calls, performing ordinary office duties, and executing numerous tasks that involve computer efficiency. For nearly three years I have carried out these responsibilities and others with organization, speed, and accuracy, and I know I will be able to apply these abilities to an internship with your company.
I am therefore confident that my office experience, writing skills, academic record and resourcefulness are just the qualities you are looking for at Sunrise, Inc. I have enclosed my resume, along with a recommendation from Jim Greenspan, my supervisor at Career Services. I would love the chance to speak further with you about my opportunities with your company.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
