Sample cover letter for Internship position at Amazon



Dear Sir or Madam,

In a highly competitive world excellence is required, but excellence alone is not enough, self-starters able to envision long-term goals and ways to attain them make the difference.

Throughout my career I have developed my intrapreneurial skills, always trying to maximize the customer experience and company profitability. My experience starting new projects has allowed me to improve my leadership and interpersonal skills. Launching a new project is always thrilling, but seeing it completed is even better.

I’m not afraid of taking ownership as I have demonstrated repeatedly starting new business lines or improving existing ones. My education has allowed me to feel comfortable while using almost any computer tool I have worked with.

I enjoy the challenges associated to intrapreneurship, and would love to develop my next steps in Amazon. I am available to relocate to UK or Spain, as my native language is Spanish but I am also fluent in English and a beginner in Russian and French.

The enclosed profile is a summary of my experience. I look forward to the opportunity to be part of Amazon.

Yours sincerely,
