Sample cover letter for Internship position at cdfe



Dear [Recruiter Name],

I am writing to express my interest in interning for your organization this summer, ideally in your Marketing department. XXX XXXX, General Director at Company Y as well as my current supervisor, recommended
I contact you directly and will be following up with you to discuss my quali cations.

As a native State-onian, I grew up hearing the reputation Company A has for excellence and innovation.
I was able to see this for myself when [Referral name], who I met at the XX convention in Date X, arranged for me to have a fantastic seat in the orchestra to see Performance A and Performance B. I was extremely impressed by the voices, sets, and overall experience, and know I would learn an immense amount
by working for such an accomplished organization. Additionally, my skills and experience as an arts administrator, as well as my love of opera, will be a great match for your company.

I share Company A’s passion for innovation, both in artistic and administrative endeavors. As the Associate Director of Finance at Company C, I was able to make a considerable contribution to the Marketing of the organization through data analysis. I developed a new dynamic pricing model that allowed us to capitalize on an additional six percent of revenue on an already sold-out house of Performance C. When Company C’s ticket sales declined at the onset of the recession, my model allowed us to adjust quickly and roll out fresh o ers and incentives. Because of that, sixty-one percent of all single ticket buyers that season were new customers. These new single ticket buyers not only generated revenue, but also o ered a new base of people to pursue as future subscribers. It is because of this drive for innovation that I decided to enroll in the rigorous Arts Administration MBA program at the University of Wisconsin to better equip myself for the challenges we will face in the arts community in the future. As an alumni of that program yourself, I know you appreciate the value and importance of this training.

With four years arts administration experience, including three years speci cally in opera, I am prepared to contribute to Company A from day one. In addition to my coursework, I am currently expanding
my marketing and development skills at my position at the Company Y. I look forward to applying my experiences and gaining exposure to the challenges that face a tier one opera company.

Sincerely, Signature
