College students, generally during the summer breaks, are interested in doing internships or a summer job. Well, if you are one of them, you will probably be asked to submit your resume online through email or something else. In that case, you should provide a cover letter too with your resume. It not only makes you look more professional but also shows your interest in the job. A well-written cover letter will always increase your chances of getting selected.
What To Include In Cover Letters For A Summer Job
While writing an email cover letter for a summer job follow the usual email format. Include your name and the job title you are applying for in the subject line. Begin your letter by addressing it to the individual who is actually going to read this mail. Now, you need to tell them how you learned about the job – through their website or some individual. Also, if you have any contacts mention them here.
Then, give them a brief description of your experiences and training that make you fit for this job. Also, the qualifications and skills you possess that are needed for the job. Mention all the relevant stuff in a short and concise manner.
Lastly, convey your thanks to them accompanied by a request for getting the interview. Sign off with your name and a professional closing( like “Sincerely”).
