Sample cover letter for Internship position at Sunwing Airlines


Business Consultant

Your internal posting seeking a candidate for Career and Employment Trends Research Assistant position (referred to me by Grover Harris) immediately caught my attention. My strong analytical capabilities, prior work experiences, organization and time management skills, and strong interpersonal, oral and written communications skills parallel your needs. In my position as Fund Development Assistant for the Grey-Bruce Alzheimer Society, I developed and demonstrated strong research and analytical abilities. I conducted market research to effectively recruit hosts for the national fundraiser. This helped increase donations by 50% in six short weeks. As Peer Educator at Ryerson’s Health Centre, I conducted specific research and compiled appropriate resources for the Health Centre’s Alcohol Awareness Initiative. I have also used these skills for my Independent Research Project which involved applied use for research methods, proposal writing, and analysis of data using the SPSS program for Windows. I am a hard working professional with excellent communication skills. Whether it is a school assignment where I presented a 20 minute food preparation demonstration or a Sexual Health Education Presentation to residents of Community Housing, I conduct myself with poise and confidence to ensure that the messages of the presentation are effectively delivered. In addition to communication skills, I have superior organization and time management skills. During the past school year I have managed a full schedule of demanding Nutrition classes, two part-time jobs, and have participated in volunteer work.
