Sample cover letter for Internship position at Siemens'

POSITION:

Energy Sector

I am writing to express my interest in a summer internship at Siemens’ Energy Sector. Over the years, I have watched your company grow into a powerhouse that has transformed the Energy Industry with revolutionary advancements in the field of “clean and renewable” energy. As someone who gets excited by innovation and aspires to work in the Energy Industry, it is evident to me that Siemens’ Energy Sector is the place to be and I would do anything to work there.

Currently, I am a second-semester sophomore at The Pennsylvania State University majoring in Industrial Engineering with a minor in “Energy, Business, and Finance” (EBF). I have always had a strong interest in both business and science and I feel that working in this industry would combine my passions in the perfect way.

For as long as I can remember, I have always been a natural leader with strong organizational skills. Whether creating a more efficient assembly-line type process of gathering shopping carts with my co-workers at Giant or taking the lead in the set-up of American Red Cross blood drives, my high-energy, efficiency-oriented, and creative personality always shines through. As an intern at Siemens’ I know my ability to analyze efficiency, coupled with my ability to solve problems would make me a valuable asset to your company.

This past summer I interned in the Chemicals Procurement department of Church and Dwight (a large manufacturer of household/consumer products) and spent three months conducting an extensive research project on their manufacturing and supply locations. My goal was to collect, organize, and analyze data from over 4,000 locations, in order to evaluate which locations were most at risk for supply chain delays during natural disasters. Although I was the youngest of about 20 interns and was not initially familiar with the specific supply chain software (SAP, etc.), I quickly caught on and was able to utilize the programs to complete my final project. Overall, the internship at Church and Dwight was an amazing opportunity, as I gained invaluable exposure into the world of day-to-day business operations.

With that being said, I feel strongly that my analysis skills, along with my passion for the Energy Industry, and hard-working mentality would make me a great addition to the Siemens team. It would be an honor to be considered for this highly prestigious opportunity. Although my resume indicates a PA address, I have already made plans to be spending this summer living in Orlando. If there is anything else that I could do to prove my eligibility, please let me know. Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Sincerely,
