Sample cover letter for Internship position at Web Dev

POSITION:

software developer

To Whom It May Concern:

The software engineering position advertised on your website appears to be an excellent fit with my career interests. As you can see from my attached resume, I have specific experience and personal qualifications that the position in software engineering calls for, as well as educational qualifications for a position in Project Management.

I will receive my B.S. in Computer Science from University of Delaware May 2015. In addition to my major, I took courses in Oral Communications, and Technical Writing and Communications, which sharpened my communication skills. Additionally, my working experiences (Kumon, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Okura Japanese Restaurant and Cuisine) have given me practical experience in customer relations, and reinforced my ability to interact with people ranging from children to adults. Building websites for clients has also reinforced customer relations in the tech industry. I have worked with various frameworks such as Slim, a bit of Django, and .NET. I am also familiar with integrating database technology with web projects.

I am able to take on multiple activities and responsibilities simultaneously. While enrolled as a full time student at Delaware Technical and Community College for the first two years of my college career with a workload of at least 19 credits a semester, I worked 25 hours a week. This year at the University of Delaware, I have been chosen as a small group leader for my fellowship of over 60 students. I am also a Career Ambassador, where my responsibilities include coordinating and delivering presentations regarding UD Career Services to student organizations, and raising awareness about Career Service events such as career fairs and workshops. These experiences strengthened me, and have taught me the value of time management and shown me the rewards of hard work.

The position with Raytheon seems to offer an excellent career opportunity. I noted the qualifications you are looking for, and I feel that I am the right individual for your organization. I’m also excited about being exposed to the different aspects of your business operation and learning the practical side of what I’ve studied in my classes. You can reach me at the address and number listed on my resume. Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to your response.
