Sample cover letter for Internship position at Google



I am currently a third year student in the Computer Science Program at Carnegie Mellon University, and am looking for a summer internship position in the Cleveland area. In looking at your web site, I was particularly interested in Dakota Software’s emphasis on providing technology solutions in the areas of health and safety. As a candidate with a strong academic background, relevant experience, and communications skills, I am confident that I could make a positive and productive contribution to your organization. My attached resume gives evidence of my strong performance in my coursework. I have been selected to the Dean’s List over the past two semesters, and am also a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. My coursework has given me a rich mixture of both the theoretical and practical sides of my field. For example, the discrete mathematics and theory classes of my freshman year contrasted well with Technology Consulting in the Community, an upper-level course that I am enrolled in where I actually am a technology consultant to a nonprofit organization in Pittsburgh, helping the organization utilize technology to further achieve its goals. I also have past experience working in the field of computer science. Last summer, I worked as a web developer at Doveworks, a small Internet company in Messina, Ohio. I was responsible for maintaining and updating several of the company’s web applications, and was the primary developer involved with the restructuring of an online solicitation application for the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works. I used Microsoft Access in order to develop these database oriented applications. This internship gave me experience in working closely with end users in developing solutions. I would like to meet with you to discuss the possibility of an internship position at Dakota Software. I will be in the Cleveland area between March ??--??. I will contact your office a couple of weeks in advance to set up a mutually convenient time for an interview. In the meantime, I may be contacted at the phone number and e-mail address listed on my resume. Thank you for your time and interest. I look forward to meeting with you. Sincerely,
