Dear Ms. Catalin:
As a History major at Indiana University, Fort Wayne, I have developed a comprehensive
understanding of both federal and state governments. However, I realize that actually
working in a political setting is critical in integrating the theory learned in the classroom
with the actual daily workings of a government office. It is forthis reason that I am
hopeful that you will consider me for an internship in the Mayor’s office next spring.
I am confident I would be an asset as an intern in your office. I have developed excellent
research and writing skills during my three years at IPFW. In addition to the many papers
I have written for my classes, I also completed a summer internship with the Fort Wayne
EconomicAlliance Corp last year. I researched and wrote stories for The Communicator,
as well as a number of press releases to announce campus events. My writing skills
would be beneficial in writing briefings, research summaries, and correspondence if I am
offered an internship with your office.
I have worked extensively with the public in my various jobs. As a hostess and waitress
at the Hilton Hotel, Ioften came into contact with business and community leaders. The
restaurant within the Hilton prides itself on excellent customer service and we were
encouraged to do whatever was necessary to ensure that patrons had a superb dining
experience. I was promoted to head waitress during my second summer at the Hilton,
partly due to the excellent rapport I established with customers. I have alsoworked as a
tour guide at IPFW in the Admissions Department, interacting regularly with prospective
students and their parents. I understand the importance of courteous and professional
contact with the public, and am eager to work with the Mayor’s constituents.
I would be honored to have the opportunity to work with such a great political leader.
I will call you next week to discuss thepossibility of an internship in more detail with
you. . If you would like to contact me, I can be reached at (260) 555-1212 or by email at
email@example.com. I look forward to speaking with you.
