Dear Ms. Townsend:

I am very interested in joining the Human Resources Department at XYZ Company as an intern. I heard of this position through I believe I could utilize the skills I have gained through my degree in Human Resources, my strong work ethic and my leadership and organizational skills to be an asset to your organization.

I have recently demonstrated these skills through numerous activities. For a class project, I conducted a student employee satisfaction survey that gave me direct experience with the tasks of a Human Resources professional. In addition, I have demonstrated my leadership and organizational skills through my appointment to Student Human Resources Association President. Within this role, I have initiated a mock recruiting/interviewing program for all members.

Once again, I would like to reiterate my strong interest in joining your organization as an intern. I hope to talk with you further about what I can bring to your organization. I can be reached 222-222-2222.

Thank you for your consideration.
