Sample Basic Cover Letter and Resume

Ms. Stewart's documents are quite lackluster, and aren't likely to get her selected for an interview. Both the letter and the resume are quite generic and fail to demonstrate how she is uniquely qualified, or how her skills match the reader's needs. While she's had some marketing experience, she fails to explain how this experience relates to an internship with a television station. Furthermore, the attitude in her letter is quite arrogant. It's better to show how you are qualified rather than tell the reader that you are qualified.

Dear Mr. Ryder

I am interested in an internship or part time job with your company.  I enclose my resume as a first step in exploring the possibilities of employment with WLFT TV 4.

My most recent experience has been as a telemarketing operator at Progold Products.  I am responsible for the overall telemarketing of the company.  In addition, I set up and verify most appointments made for the company.

I am currently enrolled in my Junior year at Louisiana State University.  I plan to receive my degree in Marketing.  With an internship with your company, I will gain the hands-on experience I need to ensure a strong work experience in a future marketing career.

I would like to ask for an interview with your company.  Please contact me, and let me know an appropriate time.
