Sample cover letter for Internship position at nokia



The moment I saw your vacancy in the database of AIESEC, I got excited right away. I study International Business Administration at the Rotterdam School of Management. Next academic year I have to do an internship abroad and this internship is perfect in my opinion. I plan to do two masters after my bachelor; namely a master in accounting and control and a master in finance and investment. This internship at Nokia fits my ambitions really well, because it combines both aspects of my future plan. Furthermore will this internship provide me a head start and will make things easier during my masters.

Throughout my study I faced a lot of group project, individual assignments and presentations. This helped me to develop my organizational skills optimally. The controlling elements in a business are very interesting in my opinion and therefore this internship would be ideal to gain some practical knowledge in controlling. Currently I work as a data entry agent and this aided me in increasing my analytical skills. I have some experience in an international environment because of my studies and work. Within my year there are more than 40 different nationalities and at work we have many international people working too. Because of this I developed good interpersonal skills too, because I learned that you cannot talk to every person in the same way. I will give my maximum every day, because every aspect of this internship is in line with my current study and with my future plan. I have the ability to pick things up really fast and I am positive that I will adapt easily to Nokia and Munich.

My studies are fully in English so it would be second nature to work in English. I am from the Netherlands so I speak fluent Dutch too. At high school I studied German for 5 years so my knowledge of German is good.

This opportunity is incredible because every part is very interesting. I would work therefore as hard as I can to deliver the best possible results to Nokia.

I hope to get a positive respond back.

Yours sincerely,
