Sample cover letter for Internship position at Staples



Dear Staples,

As a young motivated individual I am extremely interested in submitting an application for the advertised internship opportunities.

I am a hardworking, ambitious, responsible, organized and personable individual looking to excel in the Business world. Growing up I was always proficient at working with numbers although I began college as a biology student. I suddenly noticed that this major was not adequate for my skill set and decided to switch to Accounting. Since this change has been made my grade point average has significantly increased and my interest in my major has constantly been on the rise. This year I decided to take my versatility and study abroad at Bond University in Australia. The decision to do this has changed my life. I have worked with people from all over the world, which is important in this world of Business. This experience has not only allowed me to broaden my horizon on the world but has allowed me to make myself more suitable to communicate with people of different backgrounds.

I understand that you will receive a large number of applications for this role. I do, however, believe that my motivation, commitment and pre-existing skills will allow me to fit into your work environment and immediately start supporting the needs of your organization.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my application at an interview. I have enclosed a copy of my resume for your consideration. I can be contacted at all times on the details provided above.

Thank you in advance for your time,
