Dear Ms. Myhre,
I seek the privilege of being considered for an internship position at Carlson Real Estate Company. Please allow me to tell you a bit about myself to hopefully pique your interest in considering me for a position within your firm.
I graduated from St. Cloud State University in August 2006 with a major in real estate. During my time at St. Cloud State I thrived academically in St. Cloud State's reputable real estate program and athletically in its nationally recognized hockey program. My yearly nomination to the WCHA All-Academic team was recognition of my efforts as a student-athlete.
Academically, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Real Estate in four years with a superb grade point average. I was also a member in several student organizations, including the Real Estate Association and the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Athletically, I was a fixture on defense throughout my four seasons with the hockey program.
I decided after college to play professional hockey for the South Carolina Stingrays, a minor league affiliate of the NHL's Washington Capitals. Some of the highlights of my experience in South Carolina have been my selection to the 2007 ECHL All Star Game and my involvement in volunteer activities throughout the local Charleston community. My season ends in May 2007 and I am available to relocate. My current plans are to move back to Minnesota, but I see that you have recently moved into Charlotte, NC which is not far from where I currently live. I would also consider an opportunity there.
I am ready to bring the same focus and effort to a full-time position in business as I have throughout my hockey career. The ability to successfully balance the enormous time commitment of playing Division I hockey, where national travel several times each month is the norm, with a full-time class-load will prove invaluable to my career in business.
I am excited for the opportunity that Carlson Real Estate Company presents. I hope that the information both in this letter and my resume exemplifies that I would be a valuable addition to your firm. I think my skill set is an excellent match for Carlson Real Estate Company and I am looking forward to learning more about the challenging opportunities that a career in real estate has to offer.
Thank you for considering my request.
