FIRST LAST flxx@cornell.edu School Address: Home Address: 1126 College Avenue, Room 12 501 Stony Street Ithaca, NY 14850 Tempe, AZ 88888 (607) xxx-xxxx (607) xxx-xxx February xx, 20xx Ms. Jane Lewis Deloitte Consulting LLP 25 Broadway New York, NY 10004 Dear Ms. Lewis: I am writing to apply for the Human Capital Summer Scholar Intern Program for the summer of 20xx. As a junior at the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, I am pursuing a career in human resources consulting. I am particularly drawn to the size and scope of Deloitte Consulting and the many people-focused services your company offers. I have acquired human resources experience over the past few years with different companies. This past summer, I worked for an independent training company called Training by Design and helped prepare training materials and executive coaching reports. The training material was implemented throughout a company’s southeast region for entry-level management. I’ve also worked as a Human Resources Coordinator at a 400-room resort in the Key Biscayne, Florida. Working in the day-to-day business operation, I gained HR experience in employee benefits, personal and work issues, new employee orientation, and resumes and applications. In addition to my work experience, I’ve taken multiple human resources related courses at Cornell University including Human Resources Management, Training and Development, and Corporate Communication. I am also a teaching assistant for the Human Resources Management class in the School of Hotel Administration. Moreover, I am very interested and involved in industry research and analysis and work as a research assistant for two professors. One of my current research projects includes analysis of internal and external branding surveys for the Senior Vice President of Human Resources of Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. The Human Capital Summer Scholar Intern Program seems like a perfect fit for me, and I thank you for your consideration. I will contact you by the end of next week to arrange a time to further discuss my qualifications for Deloitte Consulting. I am available on most Fridays to be in New York City. I look forward to possibly meeting you and your staff during an interview. Kind Regards, First Last School of Hotel Administration, Cornell University
