busniess analyists


I am writing to express my interest in applying for an internship.

My strong interested in working for an international organization in the field of development, and an internship at the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development in the area of trade and sustainable development would allow me to build new skills and networks with experts in the field and use this opportunity to excel in my professional career.

As I am deeply interested in the area of development, during my studies in Development and International Relations, I have focused on various research projects and I have developed my interest in development issues and trade.

Furthermore, as a part of a practicum experience during a four-month internship at the x I was engaged to undertake research in the area of sustainable development. In my research, I was focusing on the ‘Goal of a Danish Strategy for Education for Sustainable Development’, which was published on the x.

I honestly believe that I am highly motivated for the challenge to be part of the x team and I am eager to put into practice all the knowledge gained throughout the academic and my professional experience. Also my excellent communication skills, my work ethic, flexibility and my attention to detail make me a great candidate.

Thank you very much for considering my application and I am able to provide further information if needed.I hope you will consider my application and look forward to hearing from you. I thank you for your time and consideration.
