RE: Summer Internship Opportunity
Dear Human Resources Advisor,
I am writing in response to the internship information posted on your organization’s
webpage. Currently, I am a candidate at the University of Copenhagen, Institute of
International Studies for a Master’s degree in International Environment Policy. Within
this program I am focusing my studies on the sustainable development in developing
countries. As such, I am very interested in the UNDP environmental and development
work being conducted in developing countries in Asia.
I believe that my experiences and continuing education make me an excellent candidate
for a summer internship with your office. I have gained professional experience in project
management, cross-cultural teamwork, and creative problem solving though diverse
work experiences including an internet start-up, and an environmental program in Nepal.
In addition, through recent coursework in policy analysis and development theory, I have
acquired additional skills such as stakeholder analysis, drafting policy memos and
research design. I know these skills will make me a valuable asset to UNDP as an
intern, providing the opportunity to gain further experience in development work.
Hopefully, my skills, experience, and knowledge will match your needs and expectations
for interns. I am available from May-August, 200X. I have enclosed my CV and a writing
sample [etc].
Please feel free to contact me via email or by telephone should you have any questions,
or wish to discuss my application. Thank you in advance for your time.
