Sample cover letter for Internship position at Facebook



I am excited to work for Bon Bon Marketing (BBM) as it is a smaller marketing consultancy where there will be an opportunity to have hands on experience of all aspects of the business. I was impressed by the recent award BBM were given by the CIM for being one of the most innovative new consultancies on the marketing scene and I hope to be able to use my own creativity and enthusiasm to support the ongoing success of the company. I am in the final year of a four-year degree course in International Marketing at City, maintaining a 2:1 average. I will graduate in June 2014. I have gained practical experience of marketing with the French company Nouvelle in Paris. During my placement year I worked as part of a small product development team that co-ordinated the pricing, distribution and promotion of the new range of ‘Pret-à-Porter' clothing in preparation for its launch in England. My major project for the year was to investigate different methods of direct marketing and make recommendations regarding the most effective approach. This involved researching and costing the options, analysing the data and presenting my findings to senior managers within a very tight time schedule. During my degree I have taken options in International Marketing, Market Research, Direct Marketing and Retail Distribution. I have also been able to develop my languages - I am now a fluent French speaker with sound conversational German and Spanish. I have shown imagination and creativity both in my work placement and during my time at University, regularly writing articles for Massive, our student newspaper. As you can see from my enclosed CV, I also have varied retail experience and know what it is like to be on the other side of the business, selling clothes to customers. I am a good communicator and have enjoyed giving presentations and producing reports both as part of my course and while on placement. I am confident that I possess the skills and qualities you are seeking and that I will be able to make a positive contribution to Bon Bon Marketing. Thank you for considering my application. I would be very happy to discuss my application with you and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
