Sample cover letter for Internship position at Goering Center


Marketing Co-op


Dear Sir or Madam,

What fascinates me most about Marketing and Design is the level of communication and influence it creates in a community. At the Goering Center I see opportunity to communicate the overwhelming theme of necessary grooming of family and private business generation transitions to the community.

As an involved junior at the University of Cincinnati, I have two years of experience managing social channels, websites, and annual marketing strategy for two clubs. Through experience and coursework I have developed skills compatible with your prerequisites. My executive involvement requires bi-weekly presentation preparation and execution resulting in professional communication development. My relevant work at the Armory Ad Agency put my developed skills to test in the industry. At the Armory, I researched a trend analysis of the automotive industry that was used in marketing strategy and promotion. I managed the sales strategy for the e-commerce and GoPro integration of the TORC Racing website. The integration grossed more than $20,000 in just two weeks. Working directly with the Creative Director strengthened my design knowledge and expanded my ability in Adobe Creative software. The attention to detail necessary for database management and required knowledge of Microsoft Apps, security competence, and acquiring meaningful information has been instilled through Lindner Business School coursework. I believe my experience and skills could be a great asset to your efforts and make me an ideal candidate for your Marketing Co-op.

My background so far has included opportunities to travel and relocate temporarily across the country. I believe traveling is imperative in the marketing industry and to self-awareness; you learn many perspectives, then begin to realize what to cherish as well as the issues in the world. Understanding the core issues in the world is an inspiration to be a good person and contribute ideas, talents, and social responsibility. I believe I share common ground with the Goering Center community.

I would love to discuss the opportunity further in-depth. I can be available any time Monday through Friday. Thank you for your time and consideration.
