Sample cover letter for Internship position at Genentech


Clinical Operations

Dear Hiring Manager,

It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my application for the internship of Clinical Operations in Genentech. During a site visit to the company with our graduate program, a few alumni including XXX, one of your software engineers, told us about the great culture and motivating environment of the company. Since then I have been waiting for an opportunity to apply. With the combination of clinical and industrial experiences, I believe my diverse skills and qualifications will make me an asset to the team.

The past working experience guaranteed my clinical expertise, as well as the capability of time management and prioritization. It allows me to identify and implement clinical needs of new product to improve quality of care. The team-oriented role has gained my strength in efficient leadership and effective team performance.

During the one-year internship as a consultant at a medical device start-up, projects in clinical research and marketing strategy further improved my data collecting and analytical skills.

My recently accomplished Graduate program from UC Berkeley has also prepared me well in any challenges requiring organization, presentation, and business strategy. As evidenced by my successful transitioning from clinical setting to the industry and utilizing past experience in current field, I believe I will adapt to the challenges and learn new skills quickly in Genentech.

In closing, I am thrilled at the possibility of being involved in business and scientific research with the leader in the biotechnology industry. I would love the opportunity to meet the team and share more about my experience and skills that I can bring to Genentech.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards,
