Getting a great internship can open up a lot of opportunities for an aspiring intern. When applying for an internship having the perfect cover letter is crucial to beating out the competition. Internships, especially at very popular companies can be difficult to get and you are competing against many highly qualified people. That is exactly why your cover letter has to be amazing. It should be the crme de la crme of all the internship cover letters.
All good cover letters should consist of a first paragraph that explains what you are applying for. This helps explain it more. You want to begin with this to get to the point and not waste the reader-s time. If it is easier to think of it in an essay format this is your introductions and explaining what you are applying for is your thesis. In the second paragraph you should state why you should get the internship. The main point of this part of the cover letter is to let them know what you have to offer. If you have a lot to offer add a third paragraph. Lastly the end of your cover letter. At this point thank them for considering you and sum up your entire cover letter.
With a great cover letter you will get that internship. If you have a lot to offer and make sure that is clear in your cover letter you will get the internship. Amazing opportunities await all you have to do is take them.
