Orchard Production Intern

Dear _____: 

I am currently interested in an internship that involves learning about orchard production and  management and would like to work for a company that specializes in agriculture production. I would  welcome the opportunity to speak with you directly regarding internship opportunities within your company. 

I am currently enrolled at California State University in Chico and will complete my Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business in the spring of 2004. My record of school work, involvement in a sorority, and volunteer activities demonstrate attributes that make me a valuable employee. Included in my list of talents are: 

Leadership Skills: As a member of Kappa Sigma Delta I have held the following leadership roles: Fundraiser Chair, Secretary, Rookie Educator, and Vice President. 

Reliability and Work Ethic: In all my leadership roles and volunteer activities, I have maintained an excellent record of being on time, prepared, and eager to take on new responsibilities. I am very goal oriented and am able to get things done in a timely manner. 

Community Involvement: I have volunteered for such programs as Community Challenge, the Boys and Girls Club, Children’s Miracle Network, and the Humane Society. I enjoy helping others and continually look for ways to help make my community a better place to live. 

Please see the attached resume for a more detailed description of my skills and abilities. I look forward to speaking with you about the opportunity to intern with your company this summer. I can be reached at the above phone numbers. Please call me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time.
