Career Resource Guide


INTERNSHIP COVER LETTER GUIDELINES Many positions require a cover letter. It should include a student’s schedule of availability for the semester he or she is seeking the position, as well as a list of areas the student has an interest in working.

A Left-Justified Block Style Format is single spaced; double spaced in between paragraphs and has no indents. 1st Paragraph Identify that you are seeking an internship, for which semester, what departments you’re interested in, and your schedule of availability. 2nd and 3rd Paragraphs Identify your strongest skills and provide examples. Work-related skills are the strongest, eg, a graphic design student might provide examples of using Photoshop, instead of identifying that his strongest skill is that he works well under pressure. 4th Paragraph Ask for the interview. Be sure to include your contact information so that the company can contact you just in case your resume gets misplaced. Finish with a line of appreciation and sign your letter. Leave four returns in between your closing and your name. Sign in that space.

To Whom It May Concern: I am currently a junior Graphic Design student at New York Institute of Technology seeking a summer 2013 internship with your company. I will be available to work at least three full days each week in the summer and am available to work some weekends. My primary interests include print and web design, and I would be interested in working in any department where I might be able to use these skills. I have developed nine web sites in the last two years for family, friends, church and professors. Stylistically, they range from fun and trendy, to academic in nature, to professional. I am most comfortable using HTML, but I have strong working knowledge of Dream Weaver, Fireworks, Photoshop and Java. My graphic design skills have enabled me to create a variety of print work. I have created a procedural handbook for the Science Fiction Club, posters and flyers for campus organizations, a magazine advertisement for my mother’s home-based clothing design business and a CD cover for my friend’s band. I enjoy graphic design because it challenges not only my design skills but also my listening and conceptualization skills. I would like the opportunity to interview for an internship with your organization. If I can provide you any additional information, or if you would like to arrange a meeting, please feel free to call me at 212-555-6847 or email me at Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to speaking with you.

Good Morning,

Please accept this letter and attached resume as an application for the clinical administrative coordinator position. I am a highly motivated and diligent individual and would love to contribute my passion and skills to this position. I am very interested in the health profession showcased by my extracurricular endeavors. I am currently an intern with the Bronx Medical Center, where I am able to work well both independently as well as a cooperative team member. In this role I assist my supervisor with teaching HIV patients how to use an iPod in order to modify their HIV data information. I spend most of my weekends volunteering because I find helping others highly rewarding. I am bilingual in English and Mandarin which helps me assist with translation as well. In addition, this summer I earned the opportunity to study Psychology at Yale University; in this course and through my research studies, my understanding of and appreciation for human social and emotional issues grew. I have the patience to handle complex and emergency situations with a sense of calm and self-confidence, and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment. All of which make me suitable for a health related environment. I have also worked as a Graduate Assistant for the NYIT - School of Education Department, so I am familiar with office operations and database systems. I passed a computer certification examination during my undergraduate studies, so I have excellent computer skills. I also like to explore and learn new computer skills/software myself such as video editing. In conclusion, I would appreciate the opportunity to interview with you in person to discuss how I might contribute to the position. I can be reached at the contact information provided. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Shu Yo

I am currently a student at New York Institute of Technology and am obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management online. I am seeking a management position in this people-friendly and rewarding industry. I learn quickly, work well in troubleshooting situations, and love working with people. I was employed at the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel, where I was given the opportunity to become a temporary Assistant Executive Housekeeper after only three weeks of joining the Housekeeping Department as Housekeeping Coordinator. I have learned a great deal about hotels and their makeup during this time. I have studied the union bylaws and have built great relationships with the union workers, delegates, and business agents. Previously, I worked as a manager in the real estate industry for a midtown Manhattan firm where there was heavy client interaction; I managed a staff of 15 employees. The experience prepared me for the rewards and challenges of the hospitality industry. These and other prior experiences validate the recognition I received as being an asset to any organization. Attached please find my résumé for your review. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you in a personal interview. I look forward to hearing from you.

555 Something Avenue New York, NY 10023 (347) 538-6103 Sharp Entertainment Address December 5, 2012 To Whom It May Concern, Please accept this letter and attached resume as an application for a position with Sharp Entertainment. In fall 2011 I had the opportunity to intern with your organization and would love to be reconsidered for a full- time position with the company. I am a student at the New York Institute of Technology where I major in Communication Arts. I will complete my bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts / T.V Production in December 2012. I believe the tasks I fulfilled as an intern with your organization make me a qualified employee candidate – not only am I familiar with the Sharp Entertainment culture, I have cultivated and practiced many of the skills related to the Production industry. During my time with the company, I had the opportunity to go on field production shoots for shows such as “Love/ Lust”. Preparing equipment and handing out appearance releases helped me gain knowledge of the basics of production and preparing for shoots. I also had the opportunity to transcribe footage for the “Call of the Wildman” and research ideas for other shows. Most recently I have been interning with the Rachael Ray show where I have further developed my related knowledge and experience. This paired with my academics and time with Sharp make me a valuable candidate. I have the motivation, creativity and interest to embark on a career with your organization. I know I will prove to be a competent employee who will contribute to your company’s productivity. I would be delighted to meet with you and discuss my credentials further. Thank you for your time and attention, I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely, Marisa Salerno
