Sample cover letter for Internship position at ARM
Hardware Interns - Design & Verification (Summer)
I am currently in my year studying towards a BEng in Engineering at the University .
I am applying for this placement as I find the work at ARM to be very interesting e.g. CPU architecture and development within the Internet of Things. ARM’s reputation within the semiconductor and software design industries and its advancement of transformative technology to society and industry strengthened my desire to work for the company. I believe I will learn a lot from working with your company as I wish to be involved in the architectural design of computers when I graduate and thus feel that this placement is perfect for me.
The modules that I have covered this year have given me a good knowledge of both analog and digital devices as well as computer architecture and programming. I believe I would be suitable for ARM as I have a great enthusiasm for digital electronics and enjoy to learn outside of class/work, an example of this is during . This placement also helped to improve my teamwork and communication skills through multi-stage engineering projects with other colleagues. During my spare time I successfully created an array of LED’s that flashed to the beat of a song using transistors and an Arduino board. This shows my initiative, problem solving abilities and that I have the drive to take a project to completion.
I believe that I would be a great addition to the company and that you would benefit from the quality of work that I would bring to the company. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
