Sample cover letter for Internship position at PWC



Please find enclosed my CV in response to your advertisement in the Western Mail for the position of Trainee Housing Assistant. You will see that I graduated from Cardiff University in June of this year with a BA Hons degree in Social Administration 2:1. This course has stimulated my interest in social policy and particularly in housing which formed the subject of my dissertation. 

I am now very keen to begin a career in housing management, hence my application.  During my vacation last year I worked in the Housing Department of Torfaen District Council. This gave me experience of the procedures involved in housing allocation and an insight into resource planning. Throughout my placement I found that I particularly enjoyed working with clients on a daily basis. I relate well to people at all levels and I also feel I have good organisational skills and a practical approach to problem solving. From looking at the job description and person specification, I can see that these skills will be really useful in this post and I am excited about the opportunity to work in an area that so suits my qualities. 

With a relevant degree and hands-on experience, the position of Trainee Housing Assistant is exactly what I am looking for and I hope I have the opportunity to persuade you of my suitability at interview.
