Sample cover letter for Internship position at Verizon


Network engineering

Staying connected is the motto of the world today and being a Network Engineer intern at Verizon, I will be a proud part of the taskforce accountable for it. As a part of the telecommunication industry for almost 4 years, I offer excellent understanding and administration of communication networks (wired and wireless) and customer support services. The work outline is perfectly tailored to my experience and background, and I believe I have the potential to adapt to the role described.

I have proven expertise in providing uninterrupted wired telephone services to around 20000 subscribers, in quick response to alarms and troubleshooting network components (switches and routes), resulting in a large reduction of network downtimes in the region. Timely resolution of trouble tickets, using the CLARITY ticketing system, needed collaboration across teams and departments, and I loved learning something new from colleagues and situations.

I am currently pursuing my Masters with a focus on communication and signal processing, and have taken up courses such as Wireless Communication technology, and computer networks which will prepare me further for this position. I believe my educational and professional experience puts me ahead of new graduates and will help me deliver from day one of joining.
