Sample cover letter for Internship position at Facebook


Software Intern

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am a second year software engineering student applying for a Software Engineering position (Internship) with Facebook.

The reason why I would be a great fit for this position is that I am extremely quick and accurate in my ability to size up a situation.

Here's an example: My last job that I got was supposed to be a three months long internship. Upon accepting the offer, I got no help whatsoever, just Internet access. I read the documentation files, did online research and learned everything that I found, which impressed my supervisor so much that he extended my assignment to over a year and a half now. I am the type of a person who pulls an all-nighter because I get so excited about something new and can't sleep until I learn it. That is precisely how passionate and devoted I am.

More on why in my opinion I deserve a chance: I contribute an innovative and versatile approach to work. Also, I view limitations as challenges to be overcome and look for new ways to do things. I am logical and very curious. I see possibilities for improvement everywhere and possess the ability to understand complex concepts.

If you have questions or need more information, you may reach me through the phone number or email listed below.

I look forward to hearing from you,
