Sample cover letter for Internship position at Cheveron



I am writing to enquire if you have vacancies in your company for the 2015/2016 SIWES program ahead of next year June/July 2016, which would run for 6months. I enclose my CV and SIWES form for your information. I am a 400 level student of Electrical/ Electronics Engineering, University of Lagos, Yaba, Lagos. A Department that gives young scholars like myself the knowledge to develop technology solutions as well as national problems like balancing tomorrow’s energy demands today.

I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail. I'm flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others. I also have lots of ideas and enthusiasm. I'm keen to work for a company with a great reputation and high profile likeChevron Nigeria Limited, a company that applies Technological Innovation to real world challenges, striving to find new and better ways to meet the world's growing demand for clean, affordable and reliable energy.

The world needs innovative energy solutions. I agree, do you? I would be delighted to discuss any possible vacancy with you at your convenience. In case you do not have any suitable openings at the moment, I would be grateful if you would keep my SIWES form on file for any future possibilities. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.
