Dear Ms. Jones:
I am highly interested in the co-op position offered by your company for the fall. My
interest in mechanical engineering lies in design, and I understand that XYZ Corporation
offers excellent opportunities for students to gain such experience. I currently possess a
3.78 grade point average at Georgia Tech and am willing to learn any new skills or
software applications that will assist me in doing my job.
I feel I can make a positive contribution to your company. I have developed leadership
skills through high school football and by serving as President of Volunteer F/X, a
student organization at Georgia Tech. Being an honorary football captain taught me the
importance of working as part of a team and gave me the opportunity to lead others. My
role in Volunteer F/X has allowed me to coordinate numerous projects, and working at
Wal-Mart this summer has helped me to learn customer service skills.
My resume and transcript are attached. I appreciate your consideration of my credentials.
If I can provide you with additional information, please let me know. You can reach me
by email at
or by phone at (XXX) XXX-XXXX. I look
forward to discussing my qualifications with you in person.
