Dear Hiring Manager,

It is with great enthusiasm that I apply for an ad sales, integrated marketing and brand management internship for Viacom.

As a result of my sport experiences, I have learned how to effectively communicate with my peers and coaches, multitask, and manage my time. I am hard working, a team player, and very competitive. These are traits that I carry over to all parts of my life, and I am eager to use these skills to plan and execute successful projects and events for your organization.

With my considerable energy and drive, I believe I could make a positive contribution to your company, and I would appreciate the opprotunity to discuss my qualifications at your earliest conveince.

I am eagar to learn about the challenges facing your company and to discuss how I can make a difference. Thank you so much for your consideration.
