Sample cover letter for Internship position at Google

POSITION:

Sales Intern

To Whom It May Concern:

Hello, my name is [Name] and I am currently a sophomore at UC Berkeley, majoring in Business Administration and minoring in Chinese. I am interested in being a sales intern for Google Taipei because I want to combine my passion for the sales industry with the technology industry, as well as further strengthen my Mandarin skills.

I believe that through my past sales experience especially in the technology field, I can bring a lot to the table as a sales intern. Currently, I am the marketing and social media coordinator for the UC Berkeley Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership under the College of Engineering, not only marketing and “selling” their events and programs to selected populations, thus increasing registration, but also leading monthly meetings on branding and strategic planning. During those meetings, I also present the data I have organized and analyzed in order to detect the strengths and weaknesses of the strategies currently employed as well as recognize improvements to increase “sales” or in this case, registration, in the future.

Aside from doing sales and marketing for the engineering department, I have also fused business and technology as a campus ambassador for Microsoft SkyDrive. As an ambassador, I had to fully understand and utilize SkyDrive in order to better sell the product and the Microsoft brand, itself, to students. I created focus groups to better understand various perspectives on SkyDrive and I also created advertisements and a demo video to further increase “sales” or in this scenario, downloads.

I also lead multiple sales and marketing projects as a founder and Vice President of Marketing for Pi Sigma Epsilon, Zeta Chi Chapter, a premier co-ed business fraternity focused on sales, marketing and management. Our clients range from local restaurants to non-profit organizations and I lead numerous projects based on their wants and needs, which, most of the time, means increasing their sales and helping them better brand themselves.

As the sales intern for Google Taipei, I will utilize the skills in sales, particularly in the technology industry, I already have as well as my fluency in Mandarin to both lead sales projects and work collectively as a team to analyze data and strategize fresh ideas towards further increasing Google’s sales and strengthening the Google brand. Thank you so much for your time. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Best Regards,

[Name]
