Sample cover letter for Internship position at liz clayborne


retail management

Dear Ms. ________,

I would like to express my interest in the Liz Claiborne Summer Internship recently posted on UCLA’s Career Services website. I believe that Liz Claiborne has the ideal environment in which I can pursue my goals of becoming successful in the field of business and retail management.

My qualifications, dedication and intellectual curiosity, combined with my interest in advancing my knowledge of the fashion and design industry, make an excellent candidate for this internship.

Over the last three years at UCLA, I have demonstrated excellent problem solving and analytical skills. I have a good understanding of management and accounting concepts and can effectively manipulate tools such as spreadsheet, stata, SPSS and databases to pull together data to solve problems and present information. I have also demonstrated my communication, leadership and strong work ethic as well as enthusiasm in my co-curricular activities and jobs while maintaining a high GPA as a full-time work study student.

I have a very strong interest in pursuing a career in business and believe that I possess the ability and initiative to deliver professional input and dedication as an intern at Liz Claiborne. In addition, I have a personal interest in design and fashion and believe that this internship will provide me with an intriguing opportunity to combine my personal interest and academic qualifications. I am very exciting about the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills I have gained as a student at UCLA to a company as prestigious as Liz Claiborne. 

 I would be delighted to have the opportunity for a personal interview. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
