Sample cover letter for Internship position at Pearson




Dear Hiring Manager:

I am writing to apply for the Communications Internship listed on Pearson’s careers site. Coming from a family of educators, Pearson’s commitment to helping others through learning truly resonates with me. My unique combination of business experiences and communication skills make me an ideal candidate for the Communications Internship.

I currently study marketing and psychology at the University of Minnesota and will graduate in May 2016. This past year, I worked as a Marketing Intern for ecoEnvelopes, building written strategy recommendations, competitive analyses, and relationships with business partners. These project management experiences strengthened my oral and written communication skills while improving my organizational and analytical skills. This past year, I was also elected as the Curtis L. Carlson School Senator for the Minnesota Student Association. There, I developed a familiarity with educational policy interacting with students, administrators, faculty, and legislators on a broad set of issues. This position presented new opportunities to apply my communication skills. Using the Minnesota Student Association’s platform, I designed and implemented social media campaigns to engage our audience and mobilize support behind our advocacy efforts utilizing both Hootsuite and TweetDeck platforms. Through these experiences I have increased my business acumen and educational communication experience.

Enclosed is my resume for your review. I look forward to discussing how I can leverage my business experiences and strong interpersonal skills on Pearson’s Research and Innovation Network team. Please feel free to contact me using the phone and e-mail information above. Thank you for your time and consideration.
