Sample cover letter for Internship position at Schipsted media group



It is with great excitement I apply for your summer internship program 2015.
After reading about the position, I am certain I would be a positive and valuable contribution to Schibsted media group, not only because my qualifications sufficiently meet your requirements; but more importantly because I passionately want to work for you.

I am a business graduate from Cass Business School in London who aspire to get a masters degree in strategic management and develop a career within the media industry. My bachelor degree is ranked 1st in London for business, management and finance degrees (The Guardian University Guide 2014) and has prepared me to hit the ground running after graduating, with highly practical modules that focus on real-world issues and has trained my leadership, team-working, networking and presentations skills, as well as providing me with transferable and hard skills such as quantitative analysis, research skills and the ability to form and express opinions on complex topics. As I did not choose to narrow my degree down to marketing or finance, and instead focus on how all functions of an organization come together to support strategy I have gained deep insight and understanding in many aspects of an organization. My degree is delivered within the context of vibrant, diverse and multi-national environment, located in the heart of city of London.

I am an enthusiastic and easily engaged individual who get things done. I have valuable working experience from my two previous jobs within the service and healthcare sector, as well as being responsible for my high-school graduation arrangement and being student representative. I am currently responsible for PR for the students union at my university, a position I pursued due to my love for social media.

In addition to my interest in the fast growing and rapidly changing media industry, I am fascinated and impressed by your successful strategy. Furthermore I agree with your core values, which is very important to me when choosing what company I want to be a part of. I am also very drawn to your mentoring program and open organisational culture, I feel confident that Schibsted media group is the ideal place for me to leverage my potential.
