Sample cover letter for Internship position at Google



Dear Mr. [blablabla]

I am a graduated student from University College Dublin, located in Belfield, specialised in Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, and I am writing to apply for a long-term internship at the Google Office. I hope that I can gain valuable legal experience while using my skills to help keep our cyber community safe.

As an undergraduate student with a major in Law and Politic Sciences at the University of Aix-Marseille, South of France, I was able to see first-hand the issues facing the community, including the effect crime can have on the public. I participated in Public Survey as a team coordinator and talked to people, reporting data that tied their personal experiences into the larger issues that were going on in the community.

[speech on what I have done.]

I believe I can make a substantive contribution to your office. My undergraduate courses allowed me to develop strong writing skills, which I continue to hone as a student enrolled in a L.L.M. I therefore master both French and English languages, on a writing, speaking and understanding basis and will be please to use those skills at your profit.

The chance to join your office would be a tremendous opportunity and honour. I know I will be a valuable addition to your office over this period if given the opportunity since I believe that my academic and professional training, combined with my passion and dedication, make me a strong candidate for a position as an intern. I have enclosed my resume for your review. I hope that you will allow me the chance to meet in person to discuss my qualifications with you and can be reached at xxx or [mail]. Thank you for your time and consideration.
