Dear Mr. Jones,

I recently learned about the Lab Assistant Summer Internship at ABCD Biotech through the “AJGJKG Newspaper”. I would like to be considered for this position. I have had opportunity to speak with Ms. Carson in the Research and Development Department about the internship at your company’s goals in the future. With the lab experience and analytical skills you are seeking, I would be a strong candidate for the position of the Intern at your company.

I am aware that your company discovers, manufactures, and markets leading prescriptions medicines for human and provides related health care services to the people who need them. With your goal of finding sustainable solutions to the health care challenges of our changing world, I feel that my problem solving skills coupled with my demonstrated lab experience will enable me to help achieve your goals.

As you can see from my Resume, I have a strong knowledge of lab techniques including electrophoresis and media preparation, as well as the ability to follow detailed instructions and protocols. In addition, I have experience working in a health-related environment with the American Heart Association which has helped me develop communication and leadership skills.

I would like to set up an appointment to talk further with you about how my skills and experience could benefit ABCD Biotech. I will contact you in about a week to see about this possibility. Thank you very much for your time.

Motivational letter template for an internship

Respected Sir/Madam,


I, (Your Name), currently in my first year at (XYZ) University, would like to apply for a 6 month internship for a post in the <name of department> department of your company.

I am currently pursuing my Masters in <Name of degree> and at our University, we understand the importance of gaining practical knowledge which will complement the textbook knowledge and help a student gain a wider perspective of the subjects.

During the <name of the course> course I have found that I am decently skilled in the art of persuasion, as my teachers and my former employer of 5 years will rightly testify. I’ve had a knack of getting my point across very well, communicating with people, understanding their needs and providing them with a value proposition which is truly hard to refuse. My skills lie in my ability to comprehensively read and understand the situation and act quickly and yet smartly.

But of what use is a raw skill, unless it is sharpened? Therefore, I decided to enroll myself in the prestigious <NAME> University to help me understand more about the subject I truly adore, to help me understand the mind of the consumer better and to learn some soft skills which have proven to be effective over many years.

Laden with textbook knowledge, I wish to implement the skills that I have learned, in the real world. What better way to prove that I have truly been benefited by this education, and what better place to start, than a company as reputed as yours?

So an internship with you, is something I look forward to very keenly.

I have enclosed my resume and cover letter as well.

Thanking You,

My Name.
