To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing to express my interest in the internship facilitated by your company. I am a recent graduate of Spring Hill College with a degree in Writing. Over the course of my time at Spring Hill, I was published twice in the annual publication of the College’s Writing journal for creative work; however, my interest lies in travel journalism. In high school, I served in many nonprofit organizations as a volunteer an ambassador for my city’s historical tourism.

With my major’s focus on the English language arts and prior community service experience with various nonprofit groups, I am familiar with positions centered around project management, communication, and mentorship in diverse settings. There is more depth as to my experience and skills within my resume, which I would greatly appreciate your taking time to read over.

At this early stage in my career, my goal is to hone my craft, gain valuable experience, and narrow the focus of my skill set. I believe that a mentorship or internship position, precisely this position, would best serve me in this endeavor.

I am confident that my degree experience and skill set would make me a great candidate, as well as an asset, to your program. Please contact me via the above information to schedule an interview at your convenience. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
