Mr. Charles Norris

ABC Consulting 

1 East Salad Street 

Springfield, MA 08777 

Dear Mr. Norris: My neighbor, Kathy Smith, a software consultant for ABC Consulting, recently told me about your opening for the Junior Software Engineering Internship. As a rising senior at Champlain College, I am very interested in this opportunity. I believe my training in C++, C#, SQL, Visual Basic 6.0, Java, VB.NET, JavaScript, VBScript, HTML, and Microsoft XNA make me an excellent candidate for this position. 

I am enclosing a copy of my resume, which outlines my academic achievements and experience providing technical support while working at the College’s Help Desk. The current semester ends in April, so I would be available to relocate for the summer and join your team immediately.

I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about this exciting opportunity. May I call your office next week to further discuss this opportunity? In the meantime, please feel free to contact me if you require additional information.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.
