Dear Ms. Couch:
I am responding to the Public Relations internship position that was recently posted on California State University, Fullerton's Titan Connection jobs database. Currently, I am a senior majoring in Sociology and Public Relations with an anticipated graduation date of May 2010.
All of my life I have had a passion for the fashion industry and have always looked for ways to submerse myself in similar environments that mirror an industry that is versatile and fast- paced. A public relations internship position with VANS, will help emphasize the skills learned and acquired through my academics and in my previous public relations internship position with Gonzo Communications. My experience with a small public relations agency taught me the basics of public relations, such as writing press releases and media alerts, but most importantly it strengthened my interest in working for a larger, more versatile company such as VANS.
In addition to my internship experience in public relations, my experience of over five years as a server has prepared me to work in a high-volume and fast-paced environment. Working as a server has equipped me with exceptional customer service skills and the ability to be flexible and adaptable. Flexibility, adaptability, and strong follow through are key strengths that will enable me to be successful as a public relations intern with VANS.
My previous experience in public relations along with my key strengths are well aligned with your public relations internship position. My schedule is flexible and I welcome an interview to further discuss how my skills and abilities closely match your internship position.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely,
