Sample cover letter for Internship position at Hanes Brands


Marketing Assistant

Dear Hiring Manager: 

As an enthusiastic recent college graduate who is ready to take new challenges, I am interested in applying for the job of a Marketing Assistant with HanesBrands. My recent work and internship experiences are largely related with marketing and promotional activities, and I believe that I have a lot to contribute to HanesBrands.

My customer based, and friendly personality are two traits that would enable me to run a successful campaign. It is because of these traits along with my educational and work experiences that have been able to allow me to perform a huge array of tasks including; generating ideas for promotional activities, assisting with the requests for proposals, gathering relevant data, organizing high-profile events and assisting in the production of new market collateral.

Living in a time period of high technology has granted me the skills to maintain a social media presence and to be able to act as a liaison between venders and consumers. My capabilities extend to understanding the need for expediting clerical work, and working hard to coordinate all aspects needed to execute a successful marketing plan.

I believe that my combination of educational and business experience is an excellent match for the Marketing Assistant position that has been described. Attached to this application is a copy of my resume with additional information about my qualifications. I can be contacted either by

telephone at ____ or by email at ______. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to receiving your reply.
