Sample cover letter for Internship position at United Nations


Humanitarian Affairs

Dear Sir/Madame

I am writing to you in order to present myself as a capable candidate for this job. Being born in England I spent all my life there and so much from my experience was based in London. As a fairly new graduate of a degree in Criminology and Sociology I am sure the transferable skills I learnt, my freshness and ability to be molded will be an asset to your organization.

My heritage is Ghanaian and so I had the opportunity to experience life in Ghana and see the clear differences in lifestyle. My two most recent professional experiences took place in London and here in Switzerland.

Without experience in the domain presented, I can offer my energy and my passion for always providing good customer service as it is the basis of every business and organisation.

I hope to meet you soon so that I may present my strengths and skills,

Kind Regards
