Another great tip for an Intern cover letter is performing research on the company. If a cover letter includes information about the company, and the applicant uses that cover letter to share how the company information affects the individual, an employer is going to be impressed. For example, one may write in their cover letter that the company has produced product A, and B for Y amount of years. Then the Intern can relay their experience with the product, and why they want to support a company who makes it. A cover letter which demonstrates personality, and creativity, is more likely to be noticed than one who simply states ”I would like this Intern. I am qualified because…” in so many words. An Intern cover letter also has to show an applicant's attitude, and communication skills. If a cover letter reflects a well thought out structure, and an innovative approach, then the proof of a potential Intern's qualifications are in the pudding!
One of the aspects a cover letter usually lacks, especially for an Intern, is being straight forward. In the past, people have been encouraged not to come across as too forward. A cover letter was recommended to be as passive-aggressive as possible. However, in the current competitive field it is important to be aggressive. An Intern cover letter should come right out and ask for an interview. After all, that is the whole purpose of writing a cover letter right? Aggressive is not a dirty word anymore, and most companies see this in a positive light. If one's cover letter is confident, and a clear declaration, then they are classified as a ”go-getter”.
One of the key elements to writing a good cover letter is the first sentence. It should be a strong sentence, and grasp the reader's attention, and then should keep building. It is also important to address a good cover letter to the actual individual that is overseeing hiring for that position. This may require a little research, but it will be worth it in the end. Once the first paragraph has the hiring manager's attention, it's all downhill.
