Sample cover letter for Internship position at UN



Dear Human Resource Manager,

With my exclusive mix of experience in marketing and community management, my courses in public relations and marketing combined with my passion for social media I believe I am the right match for the Social Media Internship at your organization.

I am currently a student at the University of Nairobi, pursuing a degree in Bachelor of Communication with a major in public relations. I have been exposed to courses in communications and marketing, having scored an average of an A and appeared in the Dean’s List of exemplary performance twice. I am eager to leverage my classroom learning into real world experience.

Additionally, I have worked as a marketing intern for XYZ Company, a marketing agency, where my responsibilities included everything from supporting the strategy team to executing social media campaigns for a few of the firm’s clients. I have previously handled social media campaigns for the presidential debate in year 2013.

I have an understanding of humanitarian contexts and can work in a pressured and changing environment, while working as a part of a team. I believe that my expertise in social media combined with my motivation and enthusiasm and my ability to interact with various multi-cultural people will make me an extraordinary asset to your communications department.

I welcome an opportunity to discuss further and I thank you in advance for reviewing my application.

Yours Sincerely,
Peter Otieno.
