Sample cover letter for Internship position at Activision

POSITION:

Video Game QA

Dear Hiring Manager,

I saw your job posting for a video game QA position and it caught my interest. My goal is to pursue a career in video game design and my research shows that a QA position is the logical entry-level position.

The enclosed resume details my background but what you won’t see on that resume are my strong analytical skills and passion for video games.

I see the world through a design lens: when traveling in Japan, I met a number of Japanese businessmen. We could not converse due to the language barrier but instead, communicated through a series of video games. Throughout my days, I come across things and can see them as the root of a video game. A recent trip to an older post office had me visualizing a zombie attack. (I actually forgot to mail my letter.) I even create games in my spare time.

I would love the chance to discuss this opportunity with you. Activision tops my list of target employers as it is known as the organization for design and the ability to market the games.

I will plan to call you on November 3rd to follow up. In the interim, my contact information is listed below.

Sincerely,
XXXXXXXXX
