As a highly-skilled and performance-driven individual with exceptional communication and negotiation skills, I am pleased to be applying for the Summer Sales Intern job at Markk, Inc. Furthermore, I believe that it would be an excellent opportunity for me to grow both personally and professionally and gain more valuable industry experience.
To shortly introduce myself, my name is Ivar Puhvel and I am a fourth-year Business Administration student at the Carnegie Mellon University where I am, with a GPA of 3.96, among the 10% of students with the best academic results. On top of academia, I am also proactively involved in multiple extracurricular activities, such as Business Club, Economics Society, and Marketing Society. The engagement in these activities has helped me to significantly improve my teamwork skills and the ability to lead a group of individuals. Throughout the years, I have also worked on multiple individual and group projects which have allowed me to acquire important time management and organizational skills.
Next, I worked as a Sales Intern at Aruza Marketing, Inc. for three months last summer. Besides identifying and analyzing potential business growth opportunities and working closely with sales representatives, I also participated in the inventory management, assisted in the development and implementation of new marketing campaigns, and completed weekly reports. For constantly performing excellent work and meeting all goals and targets, I was awarded Intern of the Month once which was a great satisfaction for all the hard work and effort I put in. Offering well-developed analytical skills, excellent work ethic, and important multitasking abilities, I am also experienced with multiple industry software programs, for example, TradeGecko, Pipedrive, HubSpot Sales, and Brightpearl. Finally, I am a native Estonian speaker with a proficiency in English and Spanish. I am confident that my qualifications make me a perfect candidate for the job.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
