Dear Hiring Manager,
I am forwarding my application for this summer internship position. I am currently a second
year computer engineering student at the University of Toronto. After having read the selection
criteria, I strongly believe that I am an ideal candidate for this position.
My previous work experience has allowed me to further develop the skills directly applicable to
this job. For example, I have handled many administrative related duties such as organizing
client databases, answering phone calls, and constructing professional documents. I also
possess excellent verbal and written communication skills that I am confident will help me
succeed in this position.
I have also been able to develop my critical thinking and problem solving skills throughout my
years of studies. In my first year, I had managed a team of five, in producing a new design for
displaying past extraordinary engineering alumni in the Universitys Hall of Distinction. As the
team leader, my ability to effectively distribute and manage the amount of time spent on tasks
ensured the completion of the project by internal deadlines set by the team.
I am always looking to learn new things and excited to show what I offer. I would greatly
appreciate the opportunity to show my enthusiasm and dedication towards this position. If you
feel as if I am qualified for any other position as well, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
