Sample cover letter for Internship position at UN

POSITION:

finance

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,
Signed,
Peter Otieno.
