Sample cover letter for Internship position at n/a


business analyst

Dear Employer,

As a young and motivated individual I am extremely interested in submitting an application for the advertised Cashier position.

In November 2013 I completed my VCE studies and also obtained my certificate in Persona Leadership, allowing me to be accepted into my current position at Monash University. This has given me a range of practical capabilities that will meet the needs of this role.

While completing my VCE and Bachelor of Commerce studies I worked part-time as a bar attendant and Waiter. My responsibilities in this role included providing face-to-face customer service and assisting on the floor with orders. This position has given me key employability skills while also allowing me to experience working in a professional and fast-paced work environment.

With regard to my ability to meet the specific requirements of this job:

  • Customer Service: Worked for just over 1 year in a face-to-face customer service environment providing customer service at registers and taking/distributing orders.
  • Reception duties: Responsibilities at Melbourne Pavilion included successfully organizing and finding solutions to a range of customer enquires.
  • General Administration: Certificate II in Business Administration has provided training in the use of skills including filing, data processing, records management and written communication.
  • My teachers and employers have commended me for my high level of interpersonal skills and naturally engaging personality. My motivations include learning new things and the challenge of meeting key objectives. My previous managers can be contacted to provide more information about my ability to meet the needs of this job.

    I understand that you will receive a large number of applications for this role. I do, however, believe that my motivation, commitment and pre-existing skills will allow me to fit into your work environment and immediately start supporting the needs of your organization.

    I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my application at an interview. I have enclosed a copy of my resume for your consideration. I can be contacted at all times on the details provided above.

    Thanking you in advance for your time,
