To Whom It May Concern:

I am a sophomore undergraduate student at Morehouse College, located in Atlanta, Georgia. I am a business administrative major with a concentration in accounting. I am applying for the User Experience Research Intern position. I am very excited about this opportunity and hope to be considered as a candidate.

After hearing about the program from a current Googler, I believe that I will be a great fit for the program. I am eager to learn from the business professionals and network with them as well. I enjoy reading the Wall Street Journal, Forbes and the Huffington Post, in order to keep up with markets, current financial news, innovative technology, and new start up companies. The biggest benefit of doing so is definitely being able to hold a conversation about important topic that is currently happening in the financial service industry, while being knowledgeable of it. I consider myself a team leader who leads by example and does not take responsibility lightly. My résumé outline specific leadership positions that I have hold and have held.

I would love the opportunity to be considered for a position in the User Experience Research Intern position, this summer. I know I will be a great asset to Google if given the opportunity. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
