Sample cover letter for Internship position at Google


software engineer

Dear Hiring Manager,

Application for a placement at Software Engineering Winter Intern Program

I am a final year Computer Science student from XYZ and highly interested in your Software Engineering Intern program. Apart from world-class creative environment at Google, this program has deeply attracted me with challenging yet rewarding job scope. What’s more, the ideal match between requirements and my qualifications further built up my confidence in applying for this program.

Academically, my outstanding result, especially in mathematics and computer science courses, proved strong technical and analytical aptitude. On top of that, academic awards such as Dean’s List as well as intensive research and project experience further demonstrated solid learning ability and capability to work under pressure. What’s more, a completed Minor in Business enhanced my understanding on the landscape of a globalized world.

In addition, previous working experiences have polished my communication skills and sense of responsibility, which better suit me for this position. My internship team in ABC was in charge of one distributed worldwide real-time trading system, where I need to communicate and work seamlessly with colleagues from different region. Furthermore, I re-designed a trade-validation system to be more scalable and implemented part of it. As assistant manager in my summer job, part of my responsibilities was to ensure everyone understands the team goal and to motivate teammates at down times.

Together with my analytical and technical aptitude, learning ability and communication skills, I am confident that I will make a positive contribution to Google.

My resume is enclosed for your review. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I would really appreciate an interview opportunity and look forward to hearing from you soon.
