Sample cover letter for Internship position at Magenta



Dear Mr. Jacobs:

Please accept the attached resume for your current intern openings at All American Co-Op. I heard

about an opening through the University of Minnesota GoldPASS System and have met with Christian

Dior previously. I am intrigued by your company as it is a growing business that meets the needs of

current agriculturists. My ability to communicate, organize and work with various types of people makes

me an excellent candidate for this position.

In my current job at the Career and Internship Services, I effectively communicate with all types of

students and give them positive feedback and constructive criticism in order to improve their resumes

and cover letters. As the Minnesota FFA Foundation Intern this summer I was able to exemplify my

organizational skills in a mass mailing of over 900 recipients. I also created a two year financial report of

Foundation sponsorship. I assisted in planning numerous major fundraisers including a golf tournament

and a Twins Pre-Game meal and silent auction. By registering sponsors and coordinating volunteers, I

gained valuable organizational as well as computer skills. As a beef spokesperson I interacted with all

types of individuals from children to adults, I was also engaged in numerous speaking events, and at

times had audiences greater than 500 people. I gave classroom presentations to elementary and high

school students where I spoke to them about the importance of the beef industry in creative and learner

centered ways. I had the opportunity to answer questions of diverse consumers and address their

concerns to make sure they had a positive perspective about the beef industry. My speaking ability as

well as my ability to interact with people will be a great asset as I interact with customers.

My experience in the agriculture field runs deep in my roots, I was raised on a beef cattle operation

where I have started my own herd of beef cattle. The daily workings of the farm are not new to me,

even while attending college I make many trips home to help on the farm. Agriculture is something I am

truly passionate about and that can be seen through my work with promoting the beef industry. I

currently upkeep my own blog to inform agriculturists of current happenings and portray a positive

message to those less familiar with agriculture.

I believe my communication and organization skills will be a great asset to All American Co-Op as well as

my experience and dedication to the field of agriculture. I would be proud to work for All American CoOp to help meet the needs of the numerous consumers you serve. Please feel free to contact me by

phone at 123-456-7890 or by email at legit001@umn.edu if you would like further information. I look

forward to meeting with you. Thanks for your time and consideration.
