Sample cover letter for Internship position at DNAnexes


am writing to express strong interest in the Cloud Engineering internship with ABC and believe I’m uniquely qualified. Currently I am pursuing my Master’s degree in Software Engineering with specialization in Cloud Computing and Virtualization at San Jose State University. In my Big Data Analytics course, I had the opportunity to learn about ABC. It was the first time I studied the idea of analyzing machine generated data, not business application data or human- generated content. I became very intrigued and regard ABC as top company with whom I would like to secure a career.

My graduate studies are focused on cloud infrastructure and development, which perfectly matches the Cloud Engineering internship. Your technology’s innovative system of collecting, forwarding, and indexing heterogeneous machine data to make the data searchable changed my whole outlook on log files. For an academic project, my team analyzed 1,586,614 beer reviews with ABC Enterprise and ABC apps. We were invited to ABC HQ in SF to deliver our presentation which further solidified my interest in working at ABC.

My technical skills and enthusiasm for solving challenging and interesting problems complemented by my strong interest to be a part of the innovative projects ABC is taking on, are the unique aspects I would bring to your internship program. I look forward to hearing from you and possibly meeting you for an interview as I am eager to embark on this exciting journey with ABC. Thank you for your time and consideration.
