To whom it may concern.
Please accept this letter and enclosed resume as my application for the Summer Politics Intern job within The New York State Senate which has been advertised on LinkedIn.com. With my developed skills set and previous career experience, I believe that I am an ideal candidate for the role. If given the opportunity, I will be coming to you with a proactive approach, exceptional work ethic, and determination to succeed and meet all your expectations.
I am a results-oriented and self-driven person offering well-developed critical thinking and analytical skills and the crucial ability to solve complex problems. At the University of Pittsburgh, where I am currently enrolled in the third-year of Political Science studies, I am not only among the students with the best academic results (4.0 GPA) but I am also involved in multiple extracurricular activities, including FinTech Society, Political Society, and Psychology Society. Moreover, I have won the Academic Excellence Award twice and served as a Class Representative for one year. This valuable experience has allowed me to acquire efficient leadership skills and taught me how to function well in diverse team environments.
Next, I worked as a Congressional Intern at The United States Congress for three months last summer. There, I was mainly in charge of providing beneficial administrative support to multiple Congress members and assisting in the organization and coordination of various events and conferences. Besides that, I greeted and guided international visitors, attended committee meetings, and collaborated with other employees on the simplification of existing federal forms and applications. For finishing all assigned duties within schedule and constantly executing perfect work, I was awarded Intern of the Month.
Finally, I am offering a Leadership Certificate from the International Management Institute and the ability to remain calm in stressful situations which has proved to be necessary numerous times throughout the years. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to come in for an interview in order to discuss the position in more detail. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
