Sample cover letter for Internship position at shell



I am a junior undergraduate studying B Tech in Mining Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Varanasi writing to apply for the Shell Summer Internship 2016. Researching Shell, I was impressed by the culture at the industry and the way in which it approaches problems. Rather than try to fit problems into existing frameworks, teams at Shell have a tendency to look at each problem from a fresh and build a solution from the ground up. I am keen to gain a deeper insight into a career as an engineering intern due to its intellectual rigor and have decided to apply to Shell because of its global presence, reputation for excellence and its commitment to thought leadership.

I believe that both my educational and professional backgrounds have well prepared me for the analytical challenges that are faced in this industry .Last summer, I gained a three months internship at and also I did an internship at IIM Ahmedabad. While enrolled on the internship programme, I developed a deeper understanding of fixed income financial instruments by carrying out detailed analysis on the fundamental drivers of their prices using Microsoft Excel. Furthermore, I worked within a team to create and then give a presentation to senior managers developing interpersonal and teamwork skills which are of the utmost importance to Shell as all work is carried out it teams.

I am ready to tackle a wide variety of engineering challenges using analytical and reasoning skills to provide solutions for clients. One of the things which attracted me to this profession is the variety enjoyed by working across numerous industries with numerous clients and the opportunity to make a real impact in shaping these industries.

Finally, I have enjoyed looking over the numerous practice cases found on the Shell website specifically the logical approach taken when addressing the numerous frameworks. I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about the opportunities that Shell could afford me in the future. Thank you for your time and consideration.
