Dear Mr. Cohen:

While researching on your website, I found the opening of software engineering internship. After reading your job description, I found a close relation between my skills and your requirements. I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in software engineering and would like to become an effective member of your software engineering department.

I would bring the following attributes to Bosch in the role of a Software Engineer Intern:

✔ Demonstrated ability to design and implement features in existing and new products
✔ Adept at writing well-structured and easily maintainable code using Java, J2EE, C#, VB.NET
✔ Knowledge of working with clients, support, and QA teams to resolve bugs and support issues
✔ Well versed in providing detailed feedback on documentation and test plans for features
✔ Great logical, debugging and reasoning skills
✔ Passion for providing quality solutions

As a proactive and enthusiastic individual, I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my software engineering capabilities with you. I will get in touch with you after two weeks to set up a date of interview and to see if you require any additional information. In the meantime, I can be reached at (000) 999-9999 or via email at [Email].

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
