While looking through the University of Minnesota's career site, I noticed that XYZ Company stands out as one of the leading corporations in oceanic research and coral reef mapping. The site listed several available internships for the summer of 2012 and I would like to express my interest in them. With my education and background I can assure you that I would be an informed and enthusiastic member of your team.
I am a double major here at the University of Minnesota in both Marine Biology and Geology. That means I am well equipped to study the fish, coral, insects and plankton that we encounter, as well as the rock formations, coral arches and jetties that we may need to research or repair. I am at the top of my class and currently maintain a 4.0 GPA. I will graduate in June and I am looking for experience that is applicable to my field and also important to the science community. I will bring the same level of hard work and dedication to this internship that I do to my college education.
My sources indicate that your company will be sending representatives to my school for career day starting in March. I would love to set up an interview around that time or sooner if you have an opening. I will call your office later this week to set up an appointment. Thank you for your consideration.
