Example 1

I recently completed a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. As part of my academic program, I completed an internship where I worked as a public relations/marketing representative. This position allowed me to gain experience with planning and marketing, problem-solving, and working with people at all levels. Some of my strengths include excellent organizational skills, communicating with customers and vendors, and targeting new customers or markets to achieve sales goals. I believe I could benefit your company by using a customer-oriented approach to negotiate new accounts and exceed profit goals. I am looking for an opportunity to use the skills I have acquired to continue to serve customers while using my high-energy and creativity to reach new markets and increase sales. I am eager to work for this company because of the vast clientele you serve and your reputation for excellence.


Example 2

I recently graduated with an Associate Degree in Business Administration. As part of my program, I completed an internship at Humana in which I assisted their HR department in marketing open positions at recruitment events, compiling and creating hiring reports for upper management, and assisting a team of HR staff members in reviewing candidate profiles and processing employment offers. I also have related military experience through serving for five years in the Army as a recruiter in which I provided information on employment opportunities to potential recruits and interviewed college applicants to obtain work history, education, training, job skills and advised potential recruits of career benefits offered by the military. Further, I am an excellent problem solver who is highly detailed and organized when handling confidential information; I also have consistently demonstrated excellent communication and presentation skills through facilitating hundreds of workshops during my military career and am adept at training and providing leadership as needed.
