Sample cover letter for Internship position at NBA
GOT THE JOB? Yes
I am writing to express my interest in the NBA Associate Program, which I learned about from xxxx xxxx, Senior Manager of Compensation for the NBA. I am currently a sport management major within the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. As my enclosed resume shows, I have a number of diverse internship experiences that have given me unique perspectives on the world of basketball, which would undoubtedly prove beneficial in a position with the NBA.
Though I have been fortunate enough to intern at a premier sports agency with Octagon’s basketball division and worked in the Philadelphia 76ers’ front office, I am most proud of my accomplishments at UMass. Nothing exemplifies my time at UMass better than my role within the Association of Diversity in Sport (ADS). I began with the sport management club when it consisted of fewer than 20 students. Throughout my freshman year I proved to be a dedicated member and, as a sophomore, I was elected president of ADS. I coordinated ADS’ budgeting, sponsorship efforts, marketing plans, and created several new events and initiatives. Within two years of becoming president, ADS’ membership quadrupled to 80 and we were presented with the Outstanding Registered Student Organization of the Year award out of 300+ organizations on campus. Additionally, I received the Outstanding Student Leader of the Year award.
I have been extremely focused on the NBA Associate Program from the day xxxx xxxx called me, initially to notify me that I was a finalist for the NBA’s undergraduate internship program, but later informing me of the Associate Program after hearing about my internship with the Sixers. xxxx xxxx and I agreed that this program would be a great fit for me because the rotational structure would take advantage of my diverse internship and practical business experiences. Since learning about the program, I have toured the NBA Headquarters with xxxx xxxx, Vice President of Marketing, and I have talked at length with xxxx xxxx, President of the NBA Developmental League. Each conversation gets me more excited about the prospects of working for the best professional league in sports.
I would love to discuss my qualifications and answer any questions you have. I can be contacted at (xxx) xxx-xxxx or xxxx@xxxx. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.
