Sample cover letter for Internship position at facebook



Try not to get too specific on interview times – I have seen people write between 1.30pm and 2.30pm Monday and Wednesday etc or a full list of their holidays coming up that year!

If you find it difficult to get off work for an interview, then wait until you get called and look to book annual leave or work around the prospective employer’s availability. Simply say in the cover letter – I am available for interview at your earliest convenience.

Some final points

Many employers have large delays in the recruitment process so be prepared to wait for a response over a number of weeks. Some like to advertise for weeks and then review all applicants – an exercise the most sought after companies can afford to do.

The cover letter should not be longer than one page. Make it as succinct as possible. Double check all your spelling and grammar as most mistakes I see are in cover letters over CVs.

You can also add your cover letter as page 1 of your CV, as often employers print off the CV prior to interview or screening and forget to print off the cover letter. This avoids this happening. It also helps when online applications only permit you upload one document.

For online applications, just cut and past the cover letter into the box provided. You can omit the name and address and regards etc from at the bottom, if the word-count is limited.

Fact: Google is more likely to hire you if your resume includes side projects. Explore company projects on MindSumo
