To whom it may concern,
Please accept my application for the Summer IT Intern job at Apro Corporation in Mission Viejo, CA. I was very excited when I found your job ad on LinkedIn.com as I have been following your company for many years and believe that your mission and job requirements align perfectly with what I offer as a professional. Moreover, I believe that this would be an opportunity of a "lifetime" for me to further develop my field expertise and gain valuable industry experience.
As stated in my enclosed resume, I am a third-year Computer Science student at Princeton University where, with a 3.98 GPA, I'm among the top 10% of best-achieving students. Besides academia, I also served as a First-Year Representative for one year and have pro-actively participated in multiple extracurricular activities, such as Engineering Society, Math Society, and Tennis Club. The engagement in these activities has not only helped me to develop an important ability to function well as a team member but also taught me how to take a lead and finish any assigned task or project. During my time at the university, I've had a great chance to learn about Computer Science from the best industry professionals in the world and what's more I have experienced what's it like to work in IT.
On top of that, I worked as an IT Intern at Saratech Corporation where I was mainly responsible for assisting in the development of new web pages and monitoring and resolution of technical support requests. Besides that, I:
- Supported the IT manager, configured and maintained various hardware and software, and performed regular back-ups.
- Developed automation scripts, managed and updated databases, and worked closely with the web design team.
- Installed computer systems and executed other duties as required.
I am a native Finnish speaker with proficiency in English and a basic knowledge of Spanish. In addition, I possess the ability to use multiple important software programs and coding languages, such as Notepad++, C++, TextWrangler, BBEdit, UltraEdit, and Python.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.
