Sample cover letter for Internship position at ASD


research analyst

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am writing in response to your advertisement for the Internship position as posted on LinkedIn. I am really interested in working for ASD and believe it truly personifies the commitment in providing sustainable energy solutions to the public. Not only would I learn a great deal but also have the opportunity to contribute on a national level.

Throughout my academic years, I have honed my skills in conducting feasibility studies, literature research using databases, analyzing and summarizing data. In addition I am well versed in designing and optimizing energy systems. My involvement in various academic projects has developed my communicative, writing skills and ability to work effectively with diverse people. During my Bachelor thesis, I assessed and presented the economic benefits of biogas utilization in a rural community to the company’s CSR executives. My Master thesis is to model a cost effective grid connected residential solar PV system. During my research, I got a broad understanding of how stakeholders, incentives and government policies affect solar industry market trends. I analyzed the viability of using different storage systems like batteries, electric vehicles and compared their economic benefits. These experiences have enhanced my goal oriented approach, IT skills, acumen for using different softwares and further strengthened my knowledge of renewable energy.

My involvement at the student union allowed me to utilize my administrative and communication skills to manage business correspondence, organize priorities, coordinate in multi-cultural team environments and gain a sense of professionalism. I would use my knowledge and skills to bring significant contributions to your company and gain global expertise from the experience. My strong academic commitment as well as my participation in a number of related experiences makes me an ideal candidate for the position.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. I would welcome the opportunity to reveal my determination and enthusiasm during an interview. Thank you for your consideration.
