Sample cover letter for Internship position at Volvo


Sustainable Intern

Dear HR,

When I was younger, I’ve always remembered hearing my neighbors talk about Volvo being a great car. People would whisper when a new car entered someone’s house, they would talked about how expensive that car was but at the same time talk about how great a car it is. That’s the image of Volvo in my mind till to this very day.

I was intrigued about corporate sustainability last year at a panel in XXX, that panel changed my mind. It inspired me to take a look at sustainability in a different route rather than the conventional way of not using anything that might potential be bad for the environment. I want to be able to learn and thrive in a new environment at Volvo. Here’s what specifically I can offer for the role, I am a fast learner, I enjoy working with people, and I can easily apply what I have been taught. Working in a team to solve new ideas is always such an exciting thing. I know I can fit the role that your company is offering.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and consider my application
